- In line with DFE (Department For Education) regulations, our school does not authorise term time holidays.

- Forms must be completed to authorise medical appointments.

- The DFE expect children to have at least 95% attendance through the year. We consider 95% attendance very good, 90% expected, anything below 90&% is unsatisfactory and needs to be improved.

- After 10 unauthorised absences, the Local Authority will issue a fine.

- This guidance should not affect a child's illness. When children are ill they should remain at home until they are fit to return to school. Authorised medical appointments are not recorded as unauthorised absence.
