The school attendance policy is available to view here.

We expect all children and parents to work hard to gain 100% attendance. Our school aims each year to have an overall attendance of 96% or higher

Pupil Welfare Officer – Mrs A Pellowe

School work closely with pupil welfare and meet weekly to discuss any children who have raised attendance concerns and to offer support for parents to improve their child’s attendance. Lateness and attendance are monitored daily by the school attendance officer who will inform parents when their child’s attendance has become of concern and support will be offered.

Understand your child’s attendance and how lateness affects the attendance and learning of your child.

If you arrive after 8:55am you will be given a late mark on the register. If you arrive after 9:25am you will be given a U mark on the register.
The U mark means that your child has been given an unauthorised absence for the morning session.

Schools can fine parents for the unauthorised absence of their child from school, where the child is of compulsory school age. Therefore we strongly urge that holidays are taken outside of term time during allocated school holidays.

See our latest school holiday pattern here.
