Attendance and Absence
If your child has to be absent from school, school should be contacted to advise of your child's non-attendance and a note must be sent in to the class teacher upon their return to school, explaining the circumstances. If time out is required during school hours, this must be requested (in writing) in advance. A request form for this purpose is available from the school office.
School is obliged to keep records of absences during the year, including those for children arriving late. The government is setting targets for authorised and unauthorised absence levels.
Should you wish to request leave of absence for your child from school, please download a request form below and return to the school office. Please note: not all leave of absence is approved and you will be notified in writing with regards to the decision made by the headteacher. Thank you.
