There is a direct link between attendance and attainment . Absence from school interrupts teaching and learning and impacts on progress.
New legislation states that, head teachers may only grant a leave of absence in ‘exceptional circumstances’.
Therefore requests for holidays in term time will not be granted.
Class registers are taken at 8.55 each morning and are closed at 9.15a.m. If a child arrives after 8.55 but before 9.15 they will receive a late mark in the register. If a child arrives after 9.15 without a valid reason they will receive an unauthorised absence mark for the morning sessions.
Parents are asked to notify the school office of their child's absence by 9.00a.m.
