Welcome to the new 2019 - 2020 academic term.

Dear Parents and Carers,

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back to this new 2019/2020 academic term.

Please be assured that we will, as always strive to ensure your child receives the help and support they need to ensure a successful year. In order for this to happen it is important for you to play your part by maintaining good communication between school and home and we would like therefore to remind you of the following;

Please report any changes to personal information including address or contact numbers.

Please remember to report any medical issues including medication.

Please provide evidence of illness when at all possible so that we might be able to authorise absence.

Please ensure the correct dress code.

Please ensure your child attends punctually each day

Please remember that taking holidays in term time will affect your child's schooling as much as any other absence. There is no automatic entitlement in law, to time off during the school term to go on holiday. Leave of absence shall not be granted unless the parent / carers can prove 'exceptional circumstances'.  All applications must be made in writing at least 5 school days prior to the requested leave date. (Please see our Attendance Policy for details or ask at the school office).

We are grateful for the support we receive from parents and good attendance will ensure that your child can reach his/her full potential. To achieve this, your child needs to attend school every day. 

Attendance during one typical school year (190 days) equals this number of days absent which is approximately this many weeks absent which means this number of lessons missed (6 per day)
95% 10 Days 2 Weeks 60 Lessons
90% 19 Days 4 Weeks Over 100 Lessons
80% 38 Days 8 Weeks Over 220 Lessons
70 % 57 Days 11.5 Weeks Over 300 Lessons

Thank you in advance of supporting us with your child's attendance.
