We are actively encouraging all pupils to achieve a minimum of 96% attendance over the course of the school year. This is considered by the government to be a “good” level of attendance and one which will give your child the best chance of success.

Attendance Guide for Parents


Absence during the school term will not be authorised unless there are very exceptional circumstances. Please avoid arranging family visits, shopping trips and booking holidays during term time.

All requests for leave of absence must be authorised by the Headteacher, otherwise the absence will be noted as unauthorised and details passed onto the Education Welfare officer. Forms can be collected from the office.
