Attendance at school greatly benefits your child. Statistics show that pupils with poor attendance do less well.
Parents should ensure maximum attendance at school for their child, explaining any absence by telephoning the school on the first day of absence.
If a child is ill or attending a medical appointment, the absence will be authorised.
There are very few other reasons for which absences can be authorised.
If you wish to request a special leave of absence for your child, you must complete the form, the Headteacher will determine if the absence will be authorised or unauthorised.
