The school closely monitors absence and punctuality in order to exploit the wide range of teaching opportunities that we offer to all of our children. We work closely with the designated attendance officer who when concerned about the level of a child's attendance may make a home visit or contact parent by either letter or telephone.

Should your child need to be absent for any reason, it is important that you notify school, by either telephoning, or making a personal call, on the first day of their absence. On returning to school, we would appreciate a written explanation of the absence.

We do not encourage parents to remove their child from education in order to take holidays during term time. However, should this be unavoidable, parents are requested to contact the school office.

The school attendance target for this school year is 97%.
