Absence and Attendance

Attendance

All lateness and absences are recorded by our Administrator for Pupils and Parents. Reasons will be sought for all absence or lateness. Attendance is monitored through these systems and referrals to the Designated Child Protection Officers can be made. Parents and carers will always be informed of concerns around attendance at the earliest point. If attendance concerns continue, the school may refer to the Education Welfare Service.

Absence During Term Time

We would encourage parents and carers not to take their children out of school during term time. Every day of your child's education counts. Holidays during term time are not authorised.

Fixed Penalty Notices

The Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) is an alternative to prosecution and gives you an opportunity to discharge your criminal liability by paying a fine of £120, which must be paid within 28 days.
