Following the Government announcement, please note that our school is now closed to all pupils except vulnerable pupils and children of Key Workers. All parents/carers have been sent an email with details on how you can access our Key Worker care.
Good attendance is vital to ensure that children are in school and ready to learn. We value the support of parents in making sure that children are in school, and arrive and leave on time.
The Head Teacher of a school is no longer allowed to authorise absences of any kind except in absolutely exceptional circumstances.
We work with the other schools in Birstall and across the Oadby Learning Partnership, to support families in securing good attendance rates for their children. Where a child has been absent for a significant time, either through lots of occasional days or one long absence, we shall contact parents to see what can be put in place to prevent further absences / late marks.
