Absence from School


If your child is unable to attend school, please phone or email the office by 9.30am at the latest.

In line with NHS guidance, we have a 48 hour no return to school policy for sickness and diahorrea to help stop the spread of these illnesses. Please notify us straight away of any contagious illnesses. 

Please don't keep your child at home if they have a cough or cold, unless of course it is particularly bad.

Your child should aim to have an attendance record that is above 95%.

We do realise that sometimes children have prolonged absences and are happy to work with parents to help children 'catch up' when necessary.






Holiday Leave

Please note that unless your holiday is an exceptional circumstance, we are unable to authorise a holiday during term time. Please make an appointment to see Mr Warrender if you think your reason is exceptional.

Before booking any holiday in term time, please check with school in case it clashes with a key event or is a date for statutory testing.

Exceptional circumstances may include: visiting seriously ill family; attending a close family member's funeral or if a pupil has  a family member in the Armed Forces who is returning from operations.

The Department for Education says you're, "unlikely to get permission simply for a family holiday."
