Late/Absence Procedures

If a child is absent from school, please ring us on the first day of absence and on their return send an explanatory note.


If your child has sickness/diarrhoea, our policy is that there should be a period of 2 clear days (48 hours) before your child returns to school - this prevents contagious illnesses spreading throughout the school.


If your child is late or has to leave school for an appointment - please use the signing in book found in the Reception area.



Leave of Absence during Term Time

The law states that you do not have the right to take your child out of school for holidays during term time.  Therefore school CANNOT authorise any holiday that is in term time and can only authorise time off in EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES.  A form for leave of absence is available from the school office.


Please also note that the school is able to fine parents for taking their children on holiday during term time.
