Children who attend 100% are 5 times more likely to work at, or above, the expected standard.

Coming to school every day allows your child to get the best possible education. We’ll work with you, to help your child attend as much as they can. We’ve got great attendance, please get in touch if you’re having difficulties.

To encourage and celebrate our children for their great attendance we run regular fun days and other rewards.

It is your parental responsibility to ensure that your child attends school every day. We understand that children get ill. If your child has an illness and you are unsure whether or not they are allowed to attend school, please seek advice from the school office.

Attendance Regulations

The Governing Body of the school fully adopt the change in regulations relating to school absence Amendments have been made to the 2006 regulations in the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013.

The amendments make clear that headteachers may no longer grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. Examples include medical appointments, evidenced illnesses, religious festivals, authorised educational activity off-site (taster day at a secondary school, music exams, etc) or other exceptional circumstances (compassionate leave, parent home from armed services leave, etc).

The definition of exceptional leave does not include a child in the family having a Special Educational Need, high cost of holidays outside term time, or bookings by other family members (grandparents, etc).

Unauthorised absences of five days or more during a single term may result in a referral to the Local Authority’s Educational Social Welfare Officers and the issue of an Education Penalty Notice.
