Absence from school

We have an excellent attendance record and are committed to improving this further. We ask parents to let us know by telephone, note or in person the reason for a child's absence from school. If we do not receive a reason we have to enter the absence on the school records as an unauthorised absence.

We discourage parents from taking any holidays in term time, please see our Attendance Policy for further information. An application for any absence in term-time must be made in advance on the form headed ‘Application for leave of absence during term time’. These may be obtained from the school office.  

Please try to avoid booking medical or dental appointments during the school day.

If your child has a medical or dental appointment during school hours, please let us know in advance.
