Excellent attendance is essential if school is to support each student in achieving their full potential. Department for Education (DfE) Guidance is clear that school aged children are required to attend school each day the school is open. The only exception to this is for illness, which is unavoidable, medical appointments that cannot be moved to an out of school hours time and other exceptional circumstance. Please note, family holidays and similar occasions do not meet the criteria of ‘Exceptional Circumstance’. Please see out Attendance Policy, and Leave of Absence Request Guidance on the school Policies web page for more information.
