Reporting Absence:

Any absence from school should be reported to the office before 9.15am. If we are unable to take your call, please leave a message.

School office number: 01332 810447

Request for leave during term time:

The school and its staff regard the regular attendance of children at school as being vital to each child’s education and development. It is for this reason that non attendances (however short or infrequent) are treated seriously. It  remains the policy of the school to only sanction non-attendance during term time in exceptional circumstances.

If your child has unauthorised leave of absence you may be issued with a Penalty Notice of £120 per parent per child (discounted to £60 if paid within 21 days), or, your case could be referred by the Local Authority directly to the Magistrates’ Court for the purposes of a criminal prosecution.
