Attendance is measured by the local authority and it is important that your child attends school every day.  The Absence Policy is available on the 'Policies' page of this website.  The policy has been agreed by all schools within the John Colet Liaison Group. 



Parents should advise the school by telephone on the first day of absence and provide the school with an expected date of return. This should be followed up in the form of a written note from the parent/carer, though verbal explanations may be acceptable where this is considered appropriate. Alternative arrangements will be agreed with non-English speaking parents/carers.


Other Absence

Absence for any other reason applications must be made in writing to the Headteacher.

The school does not authorise holidays during term time and any absence will only be authorised due to exceptional circumstances.
