Illness and Holiday


Regular attendance is absolutely vital to a child’s progress, and it is a parents lawful duty to ensure that their child attends school therefore it is assumed that absence will normally only be for ill health.

If your child is absent, Parents/Carers are asked to telephone school on the first morning of absence, before 9.15am, and send a brief note of explanation to the teacher concerned when your child returns to school.

The school operates a ‘First Day Call’ system whereby if we haven’t heard about a particular child’s absence we will contact the parents concerned.

No holidays will be authorised during term time
