We need you to help us!

We are trying hard to improve attendance at school and we need you to do the following things:

  • Attendance drops on a Friday especially before a holiday. Please make sure your child is in school every Friday and does not miss school because you have planned a long weekend.
  • Do not book routine doctors and dentist appointments during school time unless absolutely necessary and bring an appointment card to the office.
  • Holidays will not be granted unless exceptional circumstances. You must apply for leave of absence prior to booking any holiday to see if permission would be granted.
  • Please only keep your child off if they are really ill and not just under the weather. We can always contact you if we feel they need to go home.

Thank you for your continued support in helping us to improve attendance.
