There is a clear link between attendance and educational achievement. Pupils need to attend school regularly to benefit from their education. We are committed to working together with you in ensuring that your child arrives at school on time and any absence is kept to a minimum and for this reason, attendance is closely monitored.
If your child is ill, please notify the school on a daily basis by 9.30am by leaving a message on the answerphone or speaking to the school office on 023 8086 8819. Unexplained absence is recorded as unauthorised.
Where possible, we ask all parents to book routine medical appointments outside of the school day or in the holidays. Please inform the school office in advance of any medical appointments.
Planned absence can only be agreed for exceptional reasons and will need to be authorised in advance. An absence request form is available from the office or you can print your own using the link below.
