We will always aim for 100% attendance; our current attendance target is 96.5%.
The National Average is 96.1% – this means taking 7 days off school each year.
Any absence must be reported to school as soon as possible, preferably before 8.45.
You can report an absence using ParentMail or call the office on 01865 433000 & give the reason for absence.
Any Dr, dentist or opticians appointments need to be made outside of school hours.
Your child can be in school before and after any appointments.
Any holidays taken during term time will NOT be authorised. Holidays will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances.
Department of Education guidelines say that any child with an attendance below 90% will be recorded as a persistent absentee.
The attendance Officer will monitor ALL individual, class and whole school attendance on a regular basis.
