It is our stated goal to improve attendance and punctuality. Absence from school (other than illness or health appointments) is at the discretion of the Headteacher. Government advice now dictates that the Head should only consider exceptional circumstances or the needs of service personnel. As there are 14 weeks of holidays there is no reason to take children out of school. You will be requested to make an appointment with the school if you are considering a period for your child out of school. Any period taken without the school being informed will be referred to the Education Welfare Officer and could be the subject of a fixed penalty fine or court action. For further information please refer to the
Attendance Policy.
