We pride ourselves in having high expectations of the children and endeavour for them to thrive and achieve. All our pupils are entitled to the same experiences and opportunities that school brings, therefore not attending school will result in loss of learning and vital parts of their curriculum. 

What is expected of parents?

As a parent, it is your legal responsibility to ensure that your child attends school. If they cannot attend for any reason, you should notify the school office and the absence may be authorised if appropriate.

It is the parent's responsibility:


To keep requests for their child to be absent to a minimum



To notify the school office on each day of your child's absence, by 9am.


To offer a reason, and medical proof, for any period of absence, preferably before the absence or on the first day of absence

To work closely with the school, the school attendance lead and Pastoral Manager to resolve any problems that may impede a child’s attendance

To take family holidays during school holiday periods and be aware that requests for holidays during term time will be refused and will likely incur a fine from the Local Authority


To be aware of curriculum requirements and be especially vigilant with regards to attendance during important academic times, such as; SATS


To ensure that their child arrives at school on time, a reason should be offered for any lateness


To support their child and recognise their successes and achievements.

If we are not informed of an absence, the school safeguarding protocols will be followed, a text will be sent which will be followed by a phone call or visit if we have no response.
