Parents are asked to call in, ring or email if a child is absent from school for any reason. Not doing so will result in an unauthorised absence. It is also important that children arrive in school on time to avoid a late mark. At the moment, as a result of our Covid-19 risk assessment, we are operating staggered school day start times. These are as follows: EYFS - 08:35, KS1 - 08:40, LKS2 - 08:45 and UKS2 - 08:50.
Holidays should be taken during the school holiday periods. We would like to strongly advise that taking your children out of school will undoubtedly interrupt your child from making expected levels of progress. When this is not possible, permission should be sought beforehand from the Headteacher in writing, requesting dates of absence within an Application for Leave of Absence Form.
Please note: applications for leave of absence during term time will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances.
