Absence and Holidays

Attendance

Holidays in Term Time

Government legislation which came into force in September 2013 makes it clear that schools must not authorise any holidays in term time and that parents will be fined if they take children out of school for this reason.  Requests for special leave of absence for exception circumstances can be considered by the Head Teacher and should be made in writing in plenty of time.  You should expect to attend a meeting with the t=Head to discuss your request.

Punctuality

School begins at 8:50am every day.

If children are late to school it disrupts learning for them and other pupils.  Late pupils MUST sign in at the office in order to ensure registers are correct and for this reason the KS1 gates will be closed from 8:50am prompt.
