Attendance

View attendance policy

Parents are reminded of the legal obligation to ensure that their children attend school and that they are on time. We maintain careful records of punctuality and attendance, as required by the Department for Education. If children are absent from school because of illness, a visit to the doctor or dentist, or for any other reason, you are requested to telephone the school before 9.30am on the first day of absence and write to the school and give the reason for the absence once your child has returned.

In the most recent reporting year the percentage of half-day sessions missed through authorised absence was 2.8%, whilst the corresponding figure for half-day unauthorised absence was 0.3%.
