Late/Absence Procedures


Parents/carers should notify the school of absence as soon as possible. If a parent does not inform school about a child’s absence, it will be recorded as unauthorised. Office staff will text message the parents of all children who are not in school, if a reason has not been supplied for the absence.

Appointments should be booked, wherever possible, out of term time so that pupils do not miss school.

Pupils arriving after the register has closed will need to enter school through the main entrance. The adult responsible for dropping the late child off at school must complete our ‘Late Slip’ stating why the child is late.

Holidays in term time

  • Holidays must not be taken in term time.

  • There are exceptional circumstances e.g. the death of a family member, where requests for holiday within term time may be granted.

  • Please refer to the DfE for guidance
