Parent Information


Absence Reporting

Parents should notify the school by 9.30am on the first day of absence, giving the reason and, if possible, likely duration of the absence. This can be done by phone call or on our communication mobile app. If contact is not received by this time, a member of the administration team will contact parents. If it is known in advance that a child will be absent, a letter outlining the reason should be sent into school. If there is no reason given for an outstanding absence, it will be recorded as ‘unauthorised absence’.

Absences are monitored by the senior leadership of the school. If your child's attendance is causing concern, you may be contacted by the school to discuss this further.


Holidays During Term Time

Parents/carers are strongly urged to avoid taking family holidays during term time.

The Section 44 of the 1996 Education Act made clear that Head Teachers may not grant any leave of absence, including holidays, during term time unless ‘exceptional circumstances’ exist.

However, if you wish your child to be absent from school, please complete the form below to request special leave or complete the form on our communication mobile app.
