Thank you for supporting your child’s education and the school. We want to make sure that children are at school everyday so that we can give them an excellent education. We need to work in partnership with parents to achieve this.
We expect children to be in school 96% of the time or more. 96% attendance means missing no more than 7 days of school in a year. We believe this is more than enough to cover minor illness and most of our children do much better than 96%. Many of our children have 100% attendance, which is excellent!
Taking children on holiday or out of school during term time is against the law.
We understand that holidays during term time may cost less money, but they are still against the law.
Term time holidays are an increasingly serious issue – and the government is advising schools to take serious action where they need to in order to make sure they do not happen.
The school is not allowed to authorise absence during term time, unless there are exceptional reasons (this does NOT include sickness of a family member).
Taking unauthorised holidays could result in a penalty notice from the Local Authority.
