All children should be at school, on time, every day the school is open, unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable. The following procedures are taken by the school when deciding how to deal with individual absences:

There are no unauthorized absences unless there are exceptional circumstances.

  • Absence request forms are available at the office and must be completed in advance of any planned absence.
  • Following Government guidelines the Head Teacher will then determine whether the absence request meets the 'exceptional circumstances' criteria.
  • Depending on the reason and the child's current attendance the Head Teacher will determine whether a fine needs to be issued.
  • All non-planned absences [medical] need to be reported to the office before 9:10am.
