It is imperative for children to be in school every day, unless they are unwell. If your child is absent from school or you wish to inform us of an appointment during the school day, you must inform the school by completing the form here Child Illness Absence Form on the first day of absence before 9:30am.
If you need to take your child out of school for a pre- booked medical appointment, an emergency, a sporting activity or holiday, you need to complete and submit this form Child Appointment/other leave of absence form
Parents and Carers are advised that requests for leave of absence during term time cannot be authorised, unless there are exceptional circumstances. See our Governor’s policy on Pupil absence during term time.
The school has set a target for attendance of 97.0%. Children whose attendance falls significantly below are at risk of further action being taken against them by the Local Authority.
Every School day counts. Days off school add up to lost learning. Please do not let your child miss out on the education they deserve.

If the gates are closed when you arrive, you will need to bring children to the school office to sign in late, before the go to class. Please try to get your child in on time, as this causes inconvenience for you as parents and disrupts the class.
