Absence and Lateness
Unauthorised absences from school are recorded on the school computer. A member of staff will contact parents if a pupil is absent without reason. Parents must contact us if pupils are to be absent for any reason.
Family holidays should not be taken during term-time. These would be recorded as unauthorised absences.
If a pupil’s attendance falls below 85%, records may be forwarded to the EA Educational Welfare Officer (EWO)
If the school staff are concerned about a pupil’s attendance, parents will be contacted by the class teacher, SENCO or Principal and appropriate assistance/advice offered.
