Attend today: Achieve tomorrow
The law entitles every child of compulsory school age to an efficient, full-time education suitable to their age, aptitude, and any special educational need they may have. It is the legal responsibility of every parent to make sure their child receives that education either by attendance at a school or by education otherwise than at a school.
Where parents decide to have their child registered at school even if not yet 5, they have an additional legal duty to ensure their child attends that school regularly. This means their child must attend every day that the school is open, except in a small number of allowable circumstances such as being too ill to attend or being given permission for an absence in advance from the school.
Attendance is a very important aspect of school life! We aim to work very closely with parents to ensure that all children attend regularly and punctually. Should you need to take your child out of school for an exceptional circumstance, please contact the school office.
You will be required to complete a leave of absence form which the office team will discuss with you.
We would rather you arranged medical appointments outside of school hours however, we appreciate this is not always easy. Should your child have an appointment to attend please let the school office know and you will be asked to provide proof of appointment.
Should your child not be well enough to come into school, please contact the school office before 9am to report the absence. Leave a message on the answerphone to report an absence on 01480 375600
Please note, if your child has sickness and diarrhoea they must not return to school until 48 hours after the last episode.
