We take attendance and punctuality extremely seriously.  If your child is absent from school please let us know before registration at 8.55am so that we can authorise the absence in our register. We are now required by law to publish all unauthorised absences and we cannot authorise them unless we have a note, a phone call or a verbal message from an adult. 

We are only allowed to authorise certain categories of absence. If your child is genuinely ill then this is authorised. If you go on holiday during term time you must complete a holiday request form (available from the school office) as soon as you know the dates of your intended holiday.  Holidays during term time must be authorised by the Head teacher.  Please remember that your child will miss valuable work if away during term time and requests may well be unauthorised.
