We believe that good attendance is the key to good learning outcomes.

We do not authorise term-time holidays unless the circumstances are exceptional. Each case is decided on its own merits, by the Executive Headteacher, without reference to decisions made in relation to other children or families.

As part of our Attendance Policy, we use the flowchart below to identify children whose attendance is a cause for concern or celebration.

In the event that a child’s attendance is a cause for ongoing concern, the letters identified in the flowchart are sent to parents to alert them to the need for an improvement in their child’s attendance.

We also have several ways to celebrate good attendance:
