Pupil Absence



We would request that pupils are punctual at all times as late arrivals will be marked as unauthorized absences on the school register. An authorized absence is one where the child’s absence has been described as medical, dental, bereavement or other family circumstance including holidays. All other absences are unauthorized.

We ask parents to try and arrange holidays in official school breaks. If this is not possible, a holiday form is available from the school office. The Headteacher may grant permission for children to accompany their relatives on holiday during term time for up to 10 days in an academic year. Any absence due to holidays above 10 working days will be unauthorized, unless approved by the Governing Body in exceptional circumstances.

We are obliged to formally account for all pupil absences. Please would you be kind enough to inform the school (Mrs Kim Roberts – 01492 860077) on the first morning that your child is absent so we know your child is safe and that there is a reason for their absence. Please always follow up all absences with a note.
