Attendance

We set very high standards with regard to attendance. Your child should be in school every day unless he or she is ill. If your child is absent for any reason, please ring on the first day of absence and keep the school informed in regards to when they will be returning.

  • Holidays during term time cannot be authorised.
  • Unexplained absences are always queried.

Please note that whenever possible medical and dental appointments should be booked outside school hours. When this is not possible, please attach a copy of the appointment card to the application. Children should be returned to school promptly after appointments and signed out and in at the welcome desk.

To celebrate those children with high attendance we have adopted a scheme of Gold, Silver and Bronze certificates. Gold are for those with 100% attendance, Silver for 97-99.99% and Bronze for 95-96.99%. There is a tab on the Pupil Zone section of the website to acknowledge the children who gained these awards each term.
