Attendance

 

Last week there were 21 unauthorised absences in school, and children were late after registers closed. 

School starts at 9am

If your child's absence is a serious concern, you will recieve a letter from school. After this, any further unauthorised absence may lead to the Local Authority taking Legal Action

You may have heard the Government will be introducing fines for parents whose children who arrive late persistently. This will work in line with The Spotlight Programme already running in school
