Whole school attendance for the summer term was 95.26%. Keep it up!
We would like to congratulate the many parents who ensure their children attend school regularly.
It is a parent's legal responsibility to ensure that their children recieve appropriate education. Failing to send your child to school regularly without good reason is a criminal offence.
Absence disrupts the education of the individual pupil and the whole class. Please remember that parental illness, going shopping, visiting family, truancy and not wanting to go to school are not acceptable reasons to be absent. All of these will be recorded as unauthorised absence. If your child arrives at school after close of registration, this will also be marked as an absence.
LEGAL ACTION MAY BE TAKEN IF PERSISTANT NON-ATTENDANCE OCCURS
If you believe there is an exceptional and urgent reason for your child to take leave during term time, you must complete the required form which can be obtained from the school office and make an appointment to discuss your request. Decisions will be made in accordance with Birmingham Local Authority's 'Leave in Term Time Guidance' and can only be authorised by the Headteacher.
If your child takes unauthorised leave in term time without the Headteacher's permission, and does not return to school within 20 school days, the pupil may be deleted from the school register on the 21st day. If this happens they will no longer have a place at school.
