Admissions and Attendance Information


We promote excellent school attendance, recognising the clear links between attendance and progress, and attendance and safeguarding. Our aim is for all children on roll to attend school every day, provided that they are fit and healthy enough to do so.
Parents / carers are asked to only withdraw their child from school if it is absolutely unavoidable. For more details, please see the school's attendance policy.
If, exceptionally, you know that your child is going to be absent from school for any period of time (even if it is part of a day) please seek the Headteacher's authorisation in advance by completing the Authorised Absence Request Form available at the school office. The Government and the school wish to discourage children from missing lessons whenever possible ad ask parents to take family holidays during school holidays.
We would expect medical and dental appointments to take place outside of school hours, but if children do need to be taken out of school to attend such appointments please sign them out at the School Office when they leave and then back again when they return.
If your child is late for school and misses registration, please sign your child in at the School Office.
We target intervention with children whose attendance falls below a target of 96%.
If your child does not attend school they will not make progress and achieve. We want all children to have high levels of attendance and give themselves the very best life changes and choices.
There are 175 non-school day per year for holidays, shopping and appointments. There should be little need, except in 'exceptional circumstances' for your child to miss a day's education. 




New and In year Admissions

We manage our own in year admission, if you would like to look around please contact the Office.
