Children should only be absent from school through personal illness. In the event of an absence, please telephone the school on the first day of absence or send a verbal message via another parent. On the child's return please send a letter explaining the reason for their absence from school.

The Health Protection Agency 'Guidance on Infection Control in Schools' with the recommended periods for children to be kept away from school for a range of illnesses can be found in 'Useful Links' on this website.

If you wish to request an absence in order to take a holiday it must be done using an official holiday form. In line with Government legislation absence will only be granted by the Headteacher in ' exceptional circumstances'. As a school we would discourage all term time holidays, as it has a detrimental effect upon your child's education.

If no explanation for an absence is forth coming procedures may be enforced and the Education Welfare Officer informed.

If holidays are taken in term time without authorisation then school will inform DCC who will issue penalty notices.

If we are not informed about reasons for absence on the first day we have first day response procedures.
