We expect your child to attend school every day, however, if your child is ill and unable to attend, please inform the school office before 9am. As a school we have a duty of care and therefore if we do not hear from you we will contact you via a phone call or carry out a home visit.
The school office is open from 8.00 am – 4.00pm Mon-Fri.
Messages can be left on the answerphone out of these hours.
• If your child has a medical appointment, please bring your appointment card/ letter to the office where we can authorise the absence.
• Remember – every day spent in school helps your child to make progress.
• Children whose attendance falls below 90% will be classed as persistent absentees and be invited in to meet with the Head of School to discuss what support can be offered to improve attendance.
Planned Absence & Holiday Requests
PLEASE NOTE THE SCHOOL WILL NOT AUTHORISE ANY HOLIDAYS.
In exceptional circumstances, such as children of members of the armed forces, acute crisis within the family and court order/formal agreement where parents have separated, it may be possible to review this.
If you would like to request a holiday during term time please email firstname.lastname@example.org with reason for absence, date of travel and date of return.
Where children miss 10 consecutive sessions (5 School Days) a referral will be made to Hull City Council which may result in a penalty notice and fine.
Sometimes children become unwell or have an accident at school and we will need to contact you. Please make sure we have up to date contact details for you.
