Late/Absence Procedures

Children arriving after 9:15am will be marked as late on the register.

Holiday Requests

The Government has stated that in the interest of promoting good attendance and reducing absences, including persistent absences, that head teachers may not grant any leave of absence for holidays during term time unless there are “exceptional circumstances”.


Please use the form below to apply for authorised absence.


You will be informed as soon as a decision has been made. It is important to note that if the request is denied and the pupil or pupils are absent from school during this period, then their absences will be marked as unauthorised.

If your child(ren)’s attendance falls below 95%, please be aware that the case will be referred to our Education Welfare Officer who may issue a fine.
