It is proven by research that children with strong attendance achieve better progress at school. The school’s target for the year is for every child to exceed 96% attendance, (no more than 7 days’ absence per year).
If a child is absent, we ask the parents to telephone school by 09:30 that day. Similarly, a written note regarding medical or dental appointments during the day should be sent into school. A list of school holiday dates can be found in the appendix. In order to support the children's learning, holidays will NOT be authorised in term time, unless in exceptional circumstances.
