Attendance

 Good attendance is vital for your child to enjoy school and make the very best progress they can. We monitor attendance very carefully in school and we will endeavour to do all we can to ensure that your child attends school each and every day.

Children are rewarded each term for 100% attendance with a certificate and a pin badge. Children's attendance which is above 95% receive a certificate. Each week, a class is rewarded with a class certificate for the best punctuality and attendance.

If your child is unwell, please telephone the school office to inform us of their absence from school and write a short note on their return.

Holidays in term time are not permitted, except in extremely rare circumstances. If you intend to take your child on a holiday in term time, please complete a form which is available from the school office. Unauthorised absences, which include most holidays, may result in a penalty notice and a fine.

If your child's attendance drops below 95%, you may receive a letter from us to highlight this to you. If you child's attendance drops below 90%, we may invite you an attendance panel to help and support you in improving your child's attendance. We work closely with our attendance officer, Phil Ball. An attendance officer may visit you in school or in your home if concerns persist to discuss ways in which we can support you and your family.
