'Why do I have to report my child's absence?'

It is a Government requirement that when the school completes the attendance register, we are able to supply written evidence of latecomers and absences .  The school is required to demonstrate the we are aware of every child’s whereabouts as part of the ‘Safeguarding Children Campaign’.


If you do not report an absence, we are obliged to contact you to find out where your child is.
