Regular and punctual attendance at school is both a legal requirement and essential for pupils to maximize their educational opportunities.

Your child should attend school every day unless there is an unavoidable cause. We ask that parents inform the school of their child’s absence on the first day and each subsequent day of absence. Where we can not make contact when a child is absent the school will conduct a home visit.

If there is an issue – please contact the school for support and advice.
