Every school day counts...

One of the most important things you can do for your child’s future is to make sure they go to school.

96% and above is good attendance

What should Parents/Carers do?


  • Telephone the school on the first day of your child’s absence to let us know why your child is not in school. 


  • If your child has an appointment please show the appointment card to school BEFORE taking them. Your child is only allowed time off school to attend the appointment. They should come to school before and return to school as soon as possible after the appointment.


  • If you wish to apply for a planned absence from school you must fill in an ‘ABSENCE REQUEST FORM’ and explain your reasons for the absence. Absence requests will only be considered under exceptional circumstances.

...if your child is 5 minutes late everyday they will miss the equivalent of 36 full lessons over the year!
