The importance of school attendance.
Non-attendance and lateness at school for any reason is an important issue and something we take very seriously. If children do not attend school regularly, they may not be able to keep up with their school work and could fall behind. Highlighting the importance of an excellent attendance record is something school sees as very important.
We understand that some children do experience difficulties with their health from time to time and we want to help them attend school wherever possible.
Following guidance from the Department of Education the Headteacher is only able to authorise leave in exceptional circumstances.
