Late/Absence Procedures


Requests for term time leave

Attendance and punctuality are key to achieving the most from the education this school provides.  Any requests for term time absence must be in writing to Mr Talbot who will then decide if the request has been authorised or not.


Reporting illness

To report any illness, please either call or email the office before 8.45am. 



Please note that arrival after the close of registration is classed as an unauthorised absence. Under the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 these absences could be used as evidence against you if legal action were to be considered by the Local Authority under Section 444 of the Education Act 1996.


National statistics show that poor time keeping seriously affects a young person’s chance of achieving their full potential. Arriving late may mean that your child misses important instructions for the day and can lead to feelings of isolation and disengagement from learning.
