Attending school everyday helps your child:
To take part in all lessons, access all learning and reach their full potential
To be involved in every aspect of school life
To have a structured routine
To make friends and develop social skills
To feel part of the school community
To value and understand the importance of education
To have greater success throughout Secondary school
WHEN YOUR CHILD IS UNWELL
If your child is unwell and unable to attend school, we ask that you call the school office by 8.30am to let us know of the absence. We will require your child’s name, class and reason.
As a school we are NOT permitted to authorise any holidays taken outside of the term dates. The termly dates can be found on our website, newsletters or via the school office. These are published at the end and start of each school year. Any absence taken for holidays will be coded as UNAUTHORISED.
REQUESTS FOR ABSENCES
If you require leave from school, for whatever reason, you must obtain a ‘Request Form’ from the school office. It is always appreciated if requests are made prior to any arrangements being made.
Certificates are issued weekly to one class in each phase with the best attendance. These are given in assembly. Children who achieve 100% attendance each term receive a certificate and a prize, also in assembly.
AS PARENTS/CARERS IT IS YOUR LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT YOUR CHILD COMES TO SCHOOL REGULARLY.
