Attendance & Leave

Pupil attendance is monitored by the school.  There are strict guidelines on expected attendance levels, which all schools in Warwickshire observe.


If your child is absent from school, please let the school office know by phone or email.  If we do not hear from you, the office staff will call before 9.30am to determine the nature of the absence.  All absence is carefully monitored, and children falling below a certain percentage become subject to the school’s attendance procedures.

As is the case in all Warwickshire schools, we do not authorise holidays during term time.  There are, of course, exceptional circumstances that will need consideration.  To make an application for leave of absence in term time, please complete a Leave of Absence Form and return to the school office.  These forms can also be found in the main entrance area outside the school office.
