Key Attendance Information:

All absences must be explained in order for them to be registered as ‘authorised’. If you are keeping your child off school for medical reasons, including trips to doctors and dentists, please could you inform the school in writing or by phone call as soon as you can. Any absence that occurs where the school has not been informed of a valid reason will be registered as ‘unauthorised’.

We urge you to make every effort to ensure that your child arrives at school on time. Where a pupil arrives after the register has been taken, it is recorded electronically and the number of late arrivals will be recorded on pupils end of year reports, as required by the Department of Education, Sport and Culture.
