Attendance is a priority in school and will continue to be so. If your child is absent for any reason, it is vital that you contact school: phone, email, write or speak to a member of staff. If we have concerns about a child's attendance, we will contact their parent/carer. If absences fall into a regular pattern, we will be seeking the advice of the school's Attendance Improvement Officer (AIO). We cannot raise standards if your child is absent, either through your child missing odd days or being late and not participating in whole class introductions and explanations.
Holidays / Extended Leave
- Holidays in term time will not be authorised. Only absences under very special circumstances will be authorised.
- If you wish to take a family holiday or extended leave in term time or you need to take your child out of school for any reason you must complete a form, which you can collect from the office. If you are planning a holiday or travelling out of the country you must also provide proof of travel and booking.
- If you take your child out of school we will follow the Leeds City Council guidelines.
