Questionnaires

A parent/carer satisfaction questionnaire is issued during the Spring Term each year.  We urge you to take the time to complete the questionnaire on receipt as your opinions are very important to us.  Your feedback provides us with the tools to make the necessary improvements for your child’s education.

 

Holiday requests

Following amendments to DfE Attendance Regulations, since September 2013 Headteachers may NOT grant any leave of absence during term time (including family holidays) unless there are EXCEPTIONAL circumstances.

Absence from school during term time can disrupt the continuity of a child’s learning and have an impact on their achievement.

If leave of absence is taken without permission from the Headteacher it will be marked as unauthorised.

Under government guidelines any absence marked as unauthorised can lead to involvement of the Education Welfare Service in persistent cases of poor attendance.

 

Sickness and Diarrhoea

From time to time children are sick (vomit) either at home or at school. Unfortunately it is not possible to distinguish between the causes, and therefore it is essential that the same rule of exclusion applies in all cases of vomiting or diarrhoea. In the Public Health Agency document, ‘Guidance on infection control in Schools and other Childcare Settings’, the recommendation is that any child with diarrhoea and or vomiting symptoms must stay away or be excluded from the school or early years setting until they have been free of symptoms for 48 hours (the ‘48 hour rule’) and feel well. If your child is sick at school, we will ask you or your emergency contact to take your child home. They should not return for 48 hours to reduce the risk of infection for all children in school.

 

 

Pupil Absence

Please remember to telephone the school if you child is absent so that the office staff can keep our registers up to date.
