Absence during term time can interrupt continuity of teaching and learning and disrupt the educational progress of individual children. The school does however recognise that there will be occasions when children will be absent from school due to illness and/or unavoidable medical apppointments.
Please can parents/carers inform the office on the first day of your child's absence or if you know in advance by:
Telephone: 01274 772175
Parents/carers are asked to be mindful of the following when looking to book the familiy holiday:
- Parents do not have the right to take their children out of school for the purposes of familiy holidays or trips abroad
- Parents should not take their children out of school without first seeking the school's permission (a Request for Leave of Absence form must be obtained from the office before any leave takes place)
- Penalty Notices may be issued to parents who take their children out of school for holidays and extended leave of absence without the permission of the school.
Parents/carers are asked to submit their requests for leave of absence for consideration to the office. Applications are assessed and authorised/unauthorised on the merit of the application, taking into account any exceptional circumstances.
