Late Registration

Being late to school can have a considerable impact over the whole school year. The table below shows you just how much time can be missed over a year just by being 5 minutes late to school every day:

5 minutes late every day = 3 days of school lost a year

10 minutes late every day = 6.5 days of school lost a year

15 minutes late every day = 10 days of school lost a year

20 minutes late every day = 13 days of school lost a year

30 minutes late every day = 19 days of school lost a year

 

Absence Reporting

It is the parent’s/carer’s responsibility to notify school on the first day of a pupil’s absence giving a full reason for the absence and when they expect the child to return to school. If we do not receive a reason we will contact you firstly via text then a phone call home.

Leave of Absence

Pupils will not be granted authorised absence for holidays during term time unless there is an exceptional circumstance. (see Attendance policy below) 

Unless authorised due to an exceptional circumstance, any holidays taken will be unauthorised and parents/carers may be subject to a Penalty Notice.

Persistent Absentee

If your child’s attendance falls below 90% they will be classed as a Persistent Absentee no matter what reason is given for absence. A letter will be sent to make you aware of this. The national average for attendance is 96% and we strive to achieve this target.
