Attendance at our school is excellent.
A 'Request for Absence Form' can be submitted to request planned absences e.g. medical appointments, visits to secondary schools or absences due to exceptional circumstances, including bereavement. You can find the form below.
When completing the form, please provide as much information as possible. Arrangements should not be confirmed unless authorisation has been received.
Regular, uninterrupted attendance at school is in the best interests of your child. When children are away, they inevitably miss out on what is happening in school, which means that as well as coping with new learning on their return, they have to catch up on what has been missed; new learning frequently depends upon building blocks and steps in learning, so gaps in learning can cause problems for a child as they move through school.
