Pupil Attendance Documents


Regular attendance and punctuality is essential and pupils are rewarded for excellent attendance.  Only illness, extreme domestic need and parental holidays are considered to be reasons for absence that can be authorised.

We ask that parents inform us if a student is expected to be absent for a period and that on return a note is brought to school to explain the absence.

The school follows up any unexplained absence as quickly as possible and will make a ‘first day absence telephone call’ to parents / carers if a pupil fails to arrive at school without school being informed of any reason.

Please do not send your child to school when they are feeling unwell.  If a child falls ill or has an accident while at school we endeavour to inform parents and arrange for them to be taken home where possible.

In case of emergency parents will be informed and the child will be taken to hospital if necessary.
