Absence

If you need to take your child for an appointment, you must collect and sign out your child as children are not allowed out of school unaccompanied during school hours.

If your child is absent from school due to illness, please notify the school by telephone or email as soon as possible. All unnotified absences are deemed “unauthorised” by the Department for Education.

If you intend to take your holiday during school time, you must apply in writing to the Headteacher giving the reason for the planned absence. Please note that holiday absences during term time will be automatically registered as an ‘unauthorised holiday absence’ in line with our school attendance policy; unless there are exceptional circumstances.
