Attendance Matters

If your child is absent from school, it is IMPERATIVE that you inform the school office. 

Below are our first day calling procedures...

First Day Calling-1

.Punctuality

  • Your child will be expected to enter school at 8.50am as legal registration takes place at 9.00am. The doors will be closed at 9am
  • Please note if your child arrives after 8.50am they will be marked as late in the register.
  • If your child arrives after the legal registration has closed (i.e. after 9.10am) this will be recorded as an unauthorised absence

Did you know?

Capture
  • If a child is late by 5 minutes every day this is equal to missing 3 days of schooling a year.
  • If a child is late by 15 minutes every day this is equal to missing 2 weeks of schooling a year.
  • If a child is late by 30 minutes every day this is equal to missing 19 days of schooling a year.

 

Term Time Holidays

As you will already be aware, schools are no longer able to authorise holidays in term time, unless there are ‘exceptional circumstances’. If you take your child on a 2 week holiday in term time, attendance for the year immediately drops to below 95%.

Where parents wish to take a holiday during term time, this must be put in writing using the Holiday Request Form, which is available through the school office or below

All Holiday Request Forms need to be submitted to the main School Office (not through class teachers) – thank you. Please be aware: parents who take a child of compulsory school age on holiday without permission from the school may be issued with a penalty notice.
