Attendance | Punctuality
We expect all children to attend school every day, unless this is unavoidable through illness or exceptional circumstances.
The register is a legal document and we must record absence by law. Information on attendance is collected electronically for every child, overnight, by the local authority.
Parents have a legal responsibility to make sure their child attends school. There is no entitlement to leave of absence in term time for holidays and so holidays should be taken during the school holiday period.
In line with government policy, our schools do not authorise leave of absence for family holidays during term time. If you take your child out of school for a holiday, you risk the local authority issuing a penalty notice or pursuing a prosecution.
