Attendances and Absences
Irregular attendance is a major cause of learning difficulty. Home and school must work together to ensure that each child attends school as often as possible.
Attendance requirements permit absence only if a child is ill. Children may not be kept away for any other reason. If a child is absent please phone 478 8424 (24 hours) or complete a Report an Absence form on this website. You will need to state you child’s name, room number and reason for absence.
If a prolonged absence is expected you can inform us of when your child is expected to return and then not have to phone/email daily.
Please be firm in the matter of attendance to ensure that children attend school when they are well and also that they stay at home when they are ill to avoid infecting other children.
If a child is continually reluctant to come to school it may mean unhappiness about some situation. Please talk to the class teacher, a member of the Senior Management team and/or Principal if this should occur.
