Parents have a responsibility to ensure that their children receive full time education. Regular attendance is essential if children are to progress with their learning.


We would expect parents/carers to inform the school by 9.30am by phone or in person, if your child is unwell and unable to attend school. If we have no reason for the absence by 9.30am the absence will be recorded as unauthorised. We would also expect to be notified if your child has a medical appointment.

Term Time Holidays

From June 2013, school’s no longer have any authority to authorise absence for a family holiday during term time. Any such absence is unauthorised. We would appreciate advanced notification of any absence wherever possible so we can account for your child’s absence without needing to call you.


Punctuality is an important social convention and late arrivals disrupt the routines of the school. We would therefore request that parents make every effort to ensure their child/ren are in school for 8.55am.
