Attendance/Holidays in term time

Attendance

By law, all children of compulsory school age (between 5 and 16) must get a suitable full time education.  Parents are responsible for making sure this happens, either by registering their child at a school or by making other arrangements which provide an effective education.  Having a good education will help to give your child the best possible start in life.  Make sure your child comes to school regularly and arrives on time.  If your child is ever away from school you should inform staff straight away.  The school works closely with the Education Welfare Service to ensure parents are supported in achieving good attendance for their children.

Holidays in term time

To comply with government guidelines absences will not be granted during term-time and will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances. If you choose to holiday in term time it will be classed as an unauthorised absence.
