Late/Absence Procedures

Can I take my child out of school during term time?

Term time absences will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances. If you wish to request a leave of absence for your child please complete the form - APPLICATION FOR LEAVE OF ABSENCE FROM MAINTAINED SCHOOLS. Please see the link below or alternatively this can be requested from the office and returned to school. Unauthorised absences may result in a penalty notice being issued. 

What if my child is ill?

Parents must inform school that their child is absent before 9.00am by telephone. Parents are encouraged to leave a message.

What if my child has a medical appointment during the school day?

We encourage parents to book appointments where possible outside of the school day however we do understand that in some circumstances this is just not possible. Please present you child's appointment card at the office and you child's absence will be authorised. 

What if my child is late for school?

School starts at 8.45 and the doors are open from 8.40am. Registration last 10 minutes from 8.45-8.55. Children who arrive after this time must enter school via the front door and the adult dropping them off should sign into our Reception IPad to record their child's attendance. It is important for children to be in school for the start of their lessons. The children start work as soon as they come through the classroom door.

Children who are late for school will be marked as late in the register.
