Parents and carers have the legal responsibility to ensure that a child attends school regularly and arrives on time. Absence taken during the school term can have a negative impact on a child’s education.
We require all medical and dental appointments to be arranged outside of school hours. Should there be ongoing medical appointments or the need for time off due to a medical issue then a letter stating this from a medical professional is required.
Without the appropriate notice and documentation, children will not be allowed to leave School for appointments. We require at least 48 hours’ notice (unless it is a medical emergency) and a copy of the appointment card/hospital letter must be brought into School.
Please contact the Attendance Officer if you have any further queries.
