Some key facts and information on school attendance:
Pupils attend school for a maximum 190 days each academic year. Full attendance is vital for your child’s educational progress. The school regards absence as a very serious concern and it is a proven fact there is a clear link between poor attendance at school and lower academic achievement (Department for Education (DfE), 2012). Please see school advice below:
Unauthorised leave of absence and late arrival
If your child is persistently late the school can issue a penalty notice to the parent or carer. A maximum of 7 late attendances during any 1 half term could mean you'll receive a penalty notice.
We strongly advise against disrupting your child’s schooling for a holiday during term time.
Government guidelines say leave of absence during term time should not be granted by the school except in the most exceptional of circumstances.
Leave of absence taken without permission of the headteacher means you could be issued with a penalty notice of £120 per parent per child (reducing to £60 if paid within 21 days)
If you fail to pay your penalty notice you may be prosecuted at magistrates' court for your child's non-attendance
