Absence and Attendance

Registration takes place before morning assembly, between 9:00am and 9:10am. If children arrive after registration is closed they are recorded as late. Parents are required to either telephone the school or write explaining the reason for absence.  Please contact the school directly (01920 870027) if your child is absent due to sickness, or has a medical appointment rather than pass on a message through your childs transport operator.

All absences are reported to parents annually.  The Attendance Improvement Officer Wendy Hasler monitors pupil attendance on a termly basis.

New guidance has been issued in November 2016, from the DfE, which sets out the responsibilities and requirements for children of statutory school age to attend school.  Permission may not be granted for family holidays by the Head Teacher.  To view this new guidance please click here.
