Please see the link to our latest Attendance Policy (updated September 2023).
In line with School Policy our school doors open at 8.45am and it is expected that all children are in school by 8.55am. If your child arrives at school after 8.55am, they are legally late and must be brought and signed into school by an adult.
Therefore please ensure should you be running late, you present at reception to complete the necessary paperwork.
Thank you for your continued cooperation.
By law, maintained schools cannot authorise any leave in term time other than in exceptional circumstances. Taking a child out of school in term time will affect their education and progress as much as any other absence. If leave is being requested for a holiday or extended leave abroad, approval should be obtained from the head teacher before making any bookings.
Leave of absence in term time will not be granted unless:
Due to the need to evidence exceptional circumstances, parents are advised to provide school with any relevant information regarding their request at the point of application if they believe the circumstances are exceptional.
In considering the request school will also consider other factors such as:
Any period of leave taken without the agreement of the school, or in excess of that agreed, will be classed as unauthorised and may attract legal sanctions such as a penalty notice.
