Regular school attendance is important for children's social and academic progress. At St. Mary's we expect children to attend school every day unless they are prevented to do so by illness. Attending school on time each day is also important to prevent children becoming upset when walking into their classroom late and so that do not miss any learning.
We ask for parental support with the following:
If you need to take your child out of school for any reason and know in advance, we ask that you complete a leave of absence form which can be requested from the school office. We ask that this is completed and return to school at least 2 weeks before the absence so that a meeting can be arranged with the headteacher to discuss your child's attendance record.
