Attendance and Leave of Absence

PODS attendance policy


If your child is ill and cannot attend school please ring the school as soon as possible to make us aware.  Please do not use Class Dojo in the first instance as a teacher may not log on to Class Dojo before school. 

All children’s attendance is closely monitored and if your child’s attendance falls below 95%, you will be informed by letter.  We would hope that by working together we would improve attendance so that it matches or exceeds our school average which is 97%. 

Leave of Absence

Leave of absence requests for holidays during term time will not be authorised.  Further information regarding this can be found at www.gov.uk/school-attendance-absence and at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/education/schools/attendance-behaviour-welfare
