For our students to gain the greatest benefit from their education it is vital that they attend regularly and that they are in school and on time every day the school is open. We will do all we can to ensure that our students achieve the maximum possible attendance and that any problems that prevent full attendance are identified and acted upon promptly.  This is why we do not authorise any planned absence from school.
