Attendance

Parents have a responsibility to ensure that their children receive full time education. Regular attendance is essential if children are to progress with their learning.

Absence

Please inform the school by 9.00am by phone, email, or in person, if your child is unwell and unable to attend school. If we have no reason for the absence by 9.30am the absence will be recorded as unauthorised. We will telephone/text parents if your child is absent from school and we have not received notification. Please also notify us if your child has a medical appointment.

Punctuality

Punctuality important and late arrivals disrupt the routines of the school, as well as missing important learning at the start of the school day. We would therefore request that parents make every effort to ensure their child/ren are in school for 8.50am.

Term Time Holidays

From June 2013, school’s no longer have any authority to authorise absence for a family holiday during term time. Any such absence is unauthorised. There are a small number of very exceptional circumstances when a holiday absence may be granted. The exceptional circumstances agreed by the Local Authority and Governing Body for Stoneferry Primary for authorising holidays in term time are:

  • Families who have a parent in the Forces and other employees who are prevented from taking holidays outside term time.
  • Acute crisis within the family, where the family needs to spend time together to support each other.
  • Other justified exceptional circumstances.

We Kindly ask that all holiday requests are put in writing to the Head of School, Mr J Raw.
