Attendance and Absence

For a child to reach their potential, a high level of school attendance is essential. We will consistently work towards a goal of 100% attendance for all children. Every opportunity will be used to convey to pupils and their parents or carers the importance of regular and punctual attendance.

School attendance is subject to various education laws and the school attendance policy is written to reflect these laws and the guidance produced by the Department for Education.



If you need to take your child out of school you will need to complete a leave request to seek permission for the absence.  A copy of the form is available below (appendix 3).  It is important that this is completed and submitted as soon as possible.
