Students Absence

It is important that we are all mindful of the importance of students being in school every day if they are to make good progress. Parents are, therefore, not permitted to take students abroad in term time. Permission can be granted by me only in special circumstances and only if the student has attendance of at least 95%. Students’ appointments should not be made during the school day as their absence will affect their learning time and attendance.
