Attending school is very important and your child should attend school every day. Children who are regularly absent from school often struggle to make progress and to keep up with their peers.
Our doors are open from 8.50am and lessons begin at 8.55 am. Your child will receive a late mark if they arrive after this time. After 8.55am children must be brought to the front entrance by a parent. The register closes at 9.30 am. If your child arrives after this time, without a valid reason, they will receive an absence mark.
If Your Child Is Absent You Must:
- Contact the school office by 9.00 am on the first morning of absence and the phone number is 01833 690298
- Let the school know the reason for any absence.
- Keep school informed on a daily basis if your child is absent for a long period.
Top Tip: Illness still counts towards a child’s absences from school, so only keep them off if absolutely necessary.
Medical evidence will be required to support absence relating to illness and you will need to provide copies of G.P. appointment cards or letters, medication details or other relevant information.
Top Tip: If at all possible, any appointments should be made out of school time. If this is not possible let us know immediately so that we can work with you to ensure your child only misses the minimum amount of school time. Return your child to school as soon as you can after the appointment.
Absences other than illness
The Government has amended regulations for taking holidays in term time and these new regulations came into effect in September 2013.
As a school we can authorise an absence for reasons other than illness, which may result in no fine being administered, but this can ONLY be done under exceptional circumstances and does not usually cover a family holiday.
Question: If my child is absent, will I receive a fine?
Answer: If a child is absent for more than 6 days in a 12 week rolling period, then the County Council will make a decision on whether to enforce a fine or not.
Attendance Support Meetings
If attendance falls to 90% or below, this is known as persistent absence. These children will be missing at least four weeks of schooling over a year and their progress will be suffering. You will be invited in for a meeting with Mr Goffee and Mrs Wilson to see what help and support we can offer.
Top Tip: We want your child in school as much as possible to maximise their potential, work with us so we can help make this happen!
