Attendance

The expectation is that all children are in school are a minimum of 95%. If your child is absent from school we must ask you for a text/telephone call, verbally to the teacher or a note on his/her return because records are kept indicating whether an absence was authorized or not. No holiday can be authorized in term time. Punctuality is a very important part of children’s education and the cooperation of all parents is required to ensure that your child arrives before the bell. The Governing Body have adopted the Cardiff LA policy of issuing fixed penalty fines for parents whose children have 10 unauthorised absences or 10 instances of poor punctuality. The fine is currently £60 and is issued to each parent. Please do not send your child to school if he/she is ill. All absences from school must be explained. If we are not informed of your child’s absence then they will receive an unauthorised mark in the register.
