Attendance on a regular basis is vital for children to make educational progress. Our attendance target for 2015/16 is 96% - this is set in negotiation with the local authority Educational Welfare Officer.
In 2014/15 we achieved 96.4% attendance, with 3.3% authorised and 0.3% unauthorised absence.
Latest government rules make it impossible for us to authorise family holidays during term time unless there are very exceptional circumstances. Any requests for leave during term time should be made through the office on the appropriate form (downloadable here).
