Late/Absence Procedures

We pride ourselves on the excellent attendance and punctuality of all of our families. 

Last year our attendance level was 97%.

 

If a child's attendance falls below 95% the family will be contacted by the Head Teacher.  There will be a 3 week monitoring period during which time we would expect attendance to improve.  

If there is  no improvement families will be invited into school to meet with the Educational Welfare Officer from Sefton where improvement targets will be set.

 

Term time holidays cannot be authorised and families may be eligible for a fine from the Local Authority if they take their children out of school.

 

Families who are persistently late may also be eligible for a fine. 

 

Absenses due to sickness will be recorded as unauthorised if we do not receive written information regarding your child's illness upon their return.  You must phone school each day of your child's sickness absence. 

 

As a school we will do all we can to support you if you find yourself in difficulty. 

Attendance for classes and groups from September to March 95% or below is classes as persistent absenteeism

Mrs Edward is unable to authorise term time holiday unless the circumstances are exceptional. Local authority Guidance details the key points that you will need. Please ensure that you are fully conversant with this document if you intend to make an application for term time leave.
