Parents - Attendance

back to the Parents Page

Children are required to attend school regularly and punctually. However, please do not send your child to school if he/she is unwell. Please inform the school by telephone or email on the first day of absence. Should we not have heard from you at the close of the register then school will seek to establish contact with you as a parent to confirm your child’s absence.

It is expected that children will attend all sessions. Any interruption in the child’s attendance may affect their progress. New attendance regulations mean that the school requires parents to notify teaching staff if their child is likely to be absent. Notification of absence does not mean that permission is given for the child to be absent. Guidelines have been issued to indicate which absences can be authorised and these are usually only for unavoidable reasons such as illness. Further details are available in school.

The Governing Body do not condone children being taken out of school for holidays during term time, as it can have a detrimental effect on your child’s learning and the absence will be unauthorized.  The Government have introduced a new zero tolerance system towards holidays during term time and parents who insist on taking their child out of school for this purpose will be subject to a fine of £60 per parent per child for each occasion.

The absence rates for the annual period up to 23 July 2014 were as follows:

Number of pupils of compulsory school age on roll – 126
Number of pupil sessions – 42187
Number of authorised absence – 1660
Percentage of authorised absence – 3.63%
