Structure of the School Day 2021-2022:
Procedures for reporting absence:
When reporting your child's absence please give a detailed reason for your daughter's absence which will be recorded on the school system. If your daughter is absent for more than one day, please update the school daily. Minor ailments, such as a headache or slight cold, are not acceptable reasons for failing to attend school. Please keep medical evidence of absence e.g. appointments cards, copies of prescriptions, pharmacy receipts and include them in the letter explaining your daughter's absence on her return to school.
On the matter of term time holiday requests; the current law does not give any entitlement to parents to take their child out of school during term time. The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 does not allow Headteachers to grant leave of absence to a pupil unless the Headteacher considers that there are exceptional circumstances relating to the application. If a holiday is not authorised, and is taken without permission, the Local Authority may issue a penalty notice to each parent.
