being in school for at least 96% of the time
What can parents and carers do to encourage school attendance?
If your child is unwell and cannot attend school, you need to phone 01604 751130 by 8.50am with the following information:
If your child will be absent because of a medical appointment, please inform the office prior to the appointment. You will be asked for evidence of this. e.g text or letter.
Your child needs to be in their classroom by 8.50am. If they arrive after that time, please bring your child to the school office to sign them in.
School needs to be informed in advance if you are planning to take your child on holiday during term time. A request for time off Form needs to be completed (see link below) and returned to the school office, who will then make an appointment for you to speak with Miss Brear or Miss Sutton.
Schools are no longer able to authorise absence for family holidays. So please be aware that if you do decide to take your child on holiday during term time you may be subject to a fine from the Northamptonshire County Council Education Entitlement Services team.
