Attendance & Absence from School

Last Updated: May 17, 2017

“Attendance has risen, and most pupils attend regularly. Children enjoy attending the Breakfast club which provides a range of activities and is a calm start to the school day” (OFSTED 2013)

Authorised Absence and Unauthorised Absences

Many children are absent from school for very sensible reasons. If your child is absent from school please notify us. You can simply tell the class teacher, write a note or telephone the school. If children are feeling particularly unwell or, for example, have a rash, parents should seek medical advice before returning them to school. Not giving a reason for your child’s absence may result in your child’s absence being unauthorised. Holidays during term time will not be authorised unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Attendance is monitored by the Education Welfare Officer, Ms Lauren Murphy, every three weeks. All pupils are expected to have attendance of 95% or above. If attendance drops below 95%, you will receive a School Attendance Letter informing you of this. If attendance does not improve, you will be issued with a second School Attendance Letter and asked to provide medical evidence each time your child is absent from school.
