If your child is unable to attend school for any reason, please let us know by telephone, letter or personal contact. This is important as we have to record in the registers the reason for each absence and whether it is authorised or unauthorised.
Holidays taken in term time are strongly discouraged. Authorisation is only given in exceptional circumstances. Family holidays are not normally deemed exceptional circumstances.
All absence, including lateness, has to be recorded and figures submitted to the DfE.
