Is Your Child In School Today?

 

Children must attend school every day and it is your responsibility to make sure they do.

Children only get one chance at school. Parents who do not ensure their child receive an appropriate education put their whole future at risk. Children who attend school regularly keep up with their school work, make friends and enjoy the social side of school life and have a better chance of getting a good job in the future.

Holiday and Attendance

Children are expected to attend regularly and punctually. We expect our children to have a minimum attendance of 96%. Poor attendance always results in a lack of achievement at school. Please ring the school office by 9:30 am to report your child's absence for each day of their absence. Children should only be away from school if they have had sickness or diarrhoea, or similar childhood illnesses – the school or your child’s GP can advise.

All holidays should be taken during the school holidays. Under exceptional circumstances parents may request permission for a child’s leave of absence for a holiday, please make an appointment with the head teacher to discuss this authorisation.

Please ensure that where possible dental and medical appointments are taken after school hours.

Children find absence very unsettling, especially when they have been away from school for long periods. Frequent days off soon add up and will result in a child failing to reach their full potential, miss crucial work and key steps to learning.
Help your child to have a head start – get them into school!
