Attendance and Absence Procedures

The more time pupils spend in school, the more progress they make. We want all our children to have 100% attendance, but understand that there may be occasions that pupils are not well enough to be in school. If this is the case, please do report the absence using the following procedure:


Reporting a Pupil Absence

Please report absences to us as soon as possible on the day of absence by calling the school office on 01522 881370. Our team will ask for the reason regarding the absence for our records. Thank you.


Absence Requests - Term Time

If you are considering an absence during term time, please read our current policy, including appendix 4/page 17 (click here to view) and then ask our administrative reception staff for a Leave of Absence form. This form will detail the number of days missed and the reasons. This will be either authorised or unauthorised by the Headteacher. Please understand that if the absence request is unauthorised, then the school may issue a Penalty Notice of £60. This fine increases to £120 if not paid within the first 28 days. Thank you for your understanding.
