Attendance
A pupil who takes 10 days holiday (authorised or not) in an academic year will only attain 94.7% attendance.  Please continue to support our target of 95% attendance and take family holidays during the school holidays!  Please contact school with the reason why your child is absent from school as soon as possible.
Please be specific with the reason for the absence.  Please do not use the words: 'poorly', 'unwell', 'ill'

The Local Authority will not accept these words as authorised reasons for absence.  Also, if we know the exact reason, we can support you with services like - the school nurse!

Thank You
Nick Blackburn
