Community Primary School (2-11 years)

Welcome to

Primary School

We are a successful and aspirational school where pupils from all backgrounds achieve strong results in a stimulating and safe environment.

Committed to Excellence

Absence

If your child is absent from school because of illness, a doctor’s appointment or any other reason, you should telephone the school office before 9:30am on each and everyday of absence.

You should make every effort to get your child to school every day.  If your child becomes unwell at school we will contact you.

Parents are strongly advised by the Government and Local Authority to avoid taking children out of school in term time because of the disruption it causes to their education.

Authorised absence will only be granted during term time in exceptional circumstances and only then if past attendance has been excellent.

Penalty notices may be issued for an unauthorised absence from school of at least 10 sessions (5 days).
