New Guidance Information for Attendance

The Government have made some changes to the attendance policies of schools. Amendments have been made to the 2006 regulations in the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013. These amendments came into force on 1 September 2013.

The amendments make clear that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence for family holidays during term time.  Leave may be granted if there are exceptional circumstances. Headteachers should determine the number of school days a child can be away from school if the leave is granted.

For further information please see the policies section on the Parents tab or click here for the full policy.

We are very proud of the cast of A Midsummer Night's Dream! Their performance at the Victoria Theatre was absolutely brilliant and was met with cheers and a massive round of applause at the end! Thank you to all the children for being involved and working so hard, to Mrs Whitehead and Miss Waddington for directing the show, to Mrs Crowther and Mrs Robison for helping on the day and to everyone who came to support the children on the night!!! We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did!

Sickness & Absence

Following the number of absences we have had in school recently please bear the following information in mind.  If you feel your child is fit for school but may just be feeling a bit unwell, eg high temperature, please do try Calpol and send them to school.  If they seem at all unwell during the school day we will contact you to let you know.  You can also complete a medicine form for school to administer Calpol or prescribed medication if necessary. 

If you are unsure please contact the school office for advice. 

If your child is going to be absent from school please contact the school office (01422 831971) to inform us as soon as possible.
