Holiday absence affects our attendance figures hugely!

We are currently receiving a lot of requests for extended holidays and at present there are 28 pupils away. This amounts to a total of 274 teaching sessions that will be missed by these pupils

Our attendance figures are greatly affected with the number above, resulting in a 5.8% absence rate,  before we even start factoring in the usual absences we experience normally. Our attendance target is 96.6% and this will be impossible to attain due to the holiday absences.

It is vital that pupils do not miss school any more than is necessary and we advise all parents to take pupils away on holiday during stipulated school term holidays set by the local authority.

Thank you.
