Pupil Absence

           Pupil Absence


Please let us know if your child is going to be absent from school for any reason. We ask parents to ring before 10 a.m. as we run a system of ‘First Day Response’. If we have not heard from you as to why your child is absent you will be contacted on that day through our texting service.


We ask parents where possible to arrange medical appointments outside of the school day. If this is not possible then we would not expect children to be absent for more than half a day. Children who need to attend appointments during the school day need to be collected from the School Office so they can be signed out.



Parental Request for Absence

Holiday dates are issued well in advance and children should not be taken out of school. There will be no authorised holiday during term time and any parents taking a holiday in term time risk a fixed penalty notice of a minimum of £60 per parent per child.
