Attendance and Current Forms
Of course there will be occasions when your children will not be able to attend school. They may be ill and there could be unavoidable medical appointments. Religious observance and short term unavoidable family crisis could mean that your children are not at school but the table below shows why your child’s education is at risk if they don’t attend school regularly.
Rewarding Good Attendance
These will be given to encourage and recognise good attendance and punctuality.
These may include:
Bronze/Silver/Gold award bands for good attendance;
Headteacher Awards for attendance and punctuality;
Constant daily recognition and praise for all children arriving promptly.
Our school day starts at 8.40am and finishes at 3pm each day.
If your child is absent from school, please contact the school office on 01793 522626 or you can contact us via Parentmail X before 8:45 am to notify us of the absence.
Returning to School
If your child’s illness involved vomiting or diarrhoea they should not return to school until 48 hours after their last bout of sickness or diarrhoea. For other illnesses, which may be contagious, please contact the school office to check the latest guidance on when it is safe for them to return.
If your child is well enough to return to school but will need a prescribed medicine administered during the school day, please click the link below (Administration of Medicines).
Where possible non urgent appointments for the doctor, dentist or opticians should be made outside of school hours. If this is unavoidable, then please let your child’s class teacher know, via your Link Book, the date and time of your child’s appointment.

Children must attend on time to be given a mark for each session the school is open, unless the lateness is unavoidable. If your child arrives after closing (9.15) without good reason they will be registered with an unauthorised absence mark.
Late arrivals sign in at the school office before joining their class for the rest of the day.
Our School and Families' Link Worker monitors punctuality on a daily basis. If a child is late more than three times in a week or any pattern is emerging, then parents will be contacted and a meeting will be held. The school will set up an Attendance Agreement with parents and further breaches of this Attendance Agreement could lead to a Penalty Notice being issued.
Education Welfare Officer (EWO)
The school can call on the EWO to check attendance figures and/or follow up any concerns the school may have regarding poor attendees, persistent lateness or pupil welfare. Parents have a legal obligation to ensure that their child attends school; persistent failure to do so could lead to the Local Authority taking legal action.
For further information click to read our Attendance Policy
Under section 199 Education Act 1993, the parent of a child of compulsory school age registered at school, must apply for authorised absence. An authorised absence from 1stSeptember 2013 can only be granted if the circumstance is deemed ‘exceptional’ (DfE guidance) by the school.
Examples of absences not deemed as ‘exceptional’
Holidays during term time
Getting up late
Looking after family members or the house
Issues relating to parents’ employment
A ‘request for absence’ form is available at the school office for you to complete or download from the link below. You will be informed as to the outcome. Families of children who take absences from school not authorised as ‘exceptional’, are liable to a fine of £60 per child per parent.
