Absence from School

We strongly encourage good attendance and ask parents to phone us immediately if a child cannot attend school.

If your child needs to attend the doctor, dentist, hospital or clinic please let the school know in advance.  We will not allow any child to leave school on his/her own and they must be collected from the school office.

New legislation from September 2013 states that head teachers cannot authorise holidays during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. Please see the Local Authority leaflet for more guidance.
