The target that is set for us by the local Authority is for every children to attend school for 96% of the time or greater.
We believe that it is detrimental to a child's education if they are off school for any time, but recognise that children may from time to time be unwell and that school is not the best place for them for a short period.
We work very closely with the local authority in monitoring attendance and will tackle unexplained absence or absence that appears to be persistent. We hold termly meetings as a minimum but more often if necessary.
If your child needs to be absent from school for appointments please could you pop in a copy of the appointment slip or letter for our records.
