Attendance and Punctuality
It is very important that the children establish good habits of punctuality and school attendance. Parents are asked to contact the school on the first day of an absence and then to confirm in writing the reason for a child being absent. Parents are urged wherever possible to take their family holidays in the school holiday periods as any interruption to the children’s schooling affects their education. Children in Years 2 and 6 have National Assessments during May and should not be kept away from school unless they are unwell.
We are required to report to the local authority cases of unauthorised absence or unexplained lateness. In certain extreme cases legal action may have to be taken.
