Absence from School 

The Department for Education expects schools and local authorities to promote good attendance and reduce absences, including persistent absence. This is because we know that missing out on lessons leaves children vulnerable to falling behind. Children with poor attendance tend to achieve less in both primary and secondary schools.

As a school we work incredibly hard to support all children and their families so as to ensure that all children have good attendance.

The Government made amendments to the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006.  These state that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence for holidays during the term time unless it is for exceptional circumstances.
