Attendance & Absence
Good school attendance is vital to enable all children to achieve their full potential, develop socially, forge good friendships and have a sense of belonging within their school community.
‘Central to raising standards in education and ensuring all pupils can fulfil their potential is an assumption so widely understood that it is insufficiently stated – pupils need to attend school regularly to benefit from their education. Missing out on lessons leaves children vulnerable to falling behind. Children with poor attendance tend to achieve less in both primary and secondary school.’
DfE Advice on school attendance (November 2016)
The school has a legal duty to record attendance of all children in school. Reasons for absence must be provided, we will contact families if we have no reason for absence.
The impact of absence in school is significant in terms of missed learning.
The school is not able to authorise term time holiday. The policy for term time leave is attached please read this carefully before applying for leave. Term time leave is applied for via a form in your Operoo form library.
