Please see our handy guide with some tips to help you as parents communicate the importance of attendance to your child.

Medical Appointments

Where possible all appointments should be booked outside of school hours. Where this is not possible, the amount of school time missed must be kept to a minimum. School may not authorise the time off school if medical evidence is not provided.

Too ill to attend school?

Children can attend school with minor ailments (tooth ache, headache, stomach ache, cold, sore throat), over the counter medicines can be given before school. School will contact you if they become too ill to remain in school.

If you are unsure how long your child should be absent with an illness speak to your child’s school, your doctor or your pharmacist for advice.

Get your child to school on time every day.

There is link between good school attendance and high level attainment.

Regardless of the reason, if your child is absent from school it will impact on their learning.

Parents/carers are legally responsible for ensuring their child attends school on time every day.
