Parents/carers have a legal duty to send their children to school regularly and risk prosecution if they fail in this duty. We encourage an open dialogue with parents about attendance as this helps to identify areas of concern.
Parents/carers must contact the school on the first day of absence by telephone before the start of the school day. If the school is not informed of the absence the school will make contact by 10:00am.
Parents/carers should attempt to arrange appointments for their child or young person outside normal school hours whenever possible. When the appointment is local, the student will be expected to attend school before and/or after the appointment.

“I like the teachers, and the leaders are open to student ideas.“
