Information for Parents


Good attendance and punctuality are vital to your child’s education. A detailed record is kept of attendance. If your child is unable to attend school because of illness or injury please telephone the school office to let us know before 9.30am on each day of absence. If we have not been notified by this time we will make every effort to contact you. When your child returns to school, please send a written explanation of the reason for absence. Absence without an acceptable reason or agreement by the headteacher is recorded as “unauthorised absence”.

Please view the attached visual aid to help understand the impact of high absence rates on your child's achievement at school.
