If a child is unable to come to school, please telephone the school office by 9.10 a.m.  If we do not receive a phone call we will endeavour to make contact with you to ascertain the reason for the absence. If a child is absent for several days, a note sent in on his/her return is required.

A medical procedure may have to be followed after illness. If this is the case, please ask for a medication request form at the office. Only prescribed medicines may be administered.

It is a statutory requirement for Parents to ensure that their child attends school unless a genuine reason has been given.  The school has the power to instruct the local authority to issue a fixed penalty notice and fine for non attendance - see information below:

Timeline                           One child                   Two children

Paid within 21 days                       £60 per parent          £60 per child = £120 per parent

After 21 days/before 28 days     £120 per parent        £120 per child = £240 per parent    

After 28 days you will receive a summons to appear to appear before the Magistrates' Court on the grounds you have failed to secure your child's regular attendance.
