Attendance

Attendance Information 

 

 Government Guidelines:

Children must get an education between the school term after their 5th birthday and the last Friday in June in the school year they turn 16.

 

When can my child/ren miss school?

You can only allow your child to miss school if either:

  • They’re too ill to go in
  • You’ve got advance permission from the school

 

Can my child/ren have a holiday in term time?

You have to get permission from the Head of School if you want to take your child out of school during term time.

You can only do this if:

  • You make an application to the Head of School in advance (as a parent the child normally lives with)
  • There are exceptional circumstances

It’s up to the Head of School to agree how many days your child can be away from school if leave is granted. If you do not get permission from the school it will be unauthorised and you may get fined!

 

What happens when my child is late?

We consider your child to be late if they arrive after 9am. If your child is late into school we ask that you sign your child in and explain why you were late. We understand that sometimes this can't be helped with traffic or car trouble. We do however, expect your child to be in on time. The lateness is then monitored and any child with 3 or more late marks in a week will receive a letter home about their attendance. If this is then continues we will ask you to come in for a meeting with us to discuss a way we can support you with getting to school on time.
