Inspiring Creativity Fostering CompassionNurturing Excellence


Excellent education is vital to the lives of all children and to our society as a whole. Whilst it is known that the life chances of children may not be equal from the outset of their lives (for various reasons), education can help to redress this imbalance and help to ensure that every child has the chance to fulfil their potential.

Regular attendance is an essential foundation for raising pupil attainment. Absence from school can seriously disrupt the continuity of learning for pupils. Not only do they miss out on taught lessons, but many children find it difficult to catch up when they return to school.


Absence, Illness & Other Circumstances

The school should be notified of the following:

1) Absence from school (please notify the school by 9:00am on the first day of absence)

2) Lateness

3) Change of address, telephone number or emergency number

4) Change in home circumstances that might affect a child’s performance at school

5) Holidays/absences in term time can only be authorised in exceptional circumstances and in advance of the absence.
