ABSENCES – Please read carefully

 

Absence from school (other than illness or health appointments) is at the discretion of the Headteacher.   LA advice indicates that the Head should consider exceptional circumstances. Children only attend school for 38 weeks per year. As there are 14 weeks of holidays there is no reason to take children out of school for excessive periods of time. If for any reason it is your intention to take your child away during term time please fill out a form. You may also be requested to make an appointment with the school or the EWO officer. If this does not take place the absence will be unauthorised, referred to the EWO and could be the subject of a fixed penalty fine or court action.
