All absences must be recorded by school every day.  There are different records as follows : - 

  • Authorised absence - where a satisfactory explanation for the pupil's absence has been given, for example - illness, medical appointments (where evidence is shown), exceptional circumstances such as family bereavement when permission has been given by the Head Teacher.
  •  Unauthorised absence - where no satisfactory explanation has been given for a child's absence, for example - no contact made or reason given, staying off school due to someone else's illness, a pupil or family members birthday, "we slept in" - arriving at school after registers close will be recorded as an unauthorised absence.  


Our absence procedure can be found on the link below.


Fixed Penalty Notices 

Where a pupil records 5 sessions of unauthorised absence (2.5 days) school will issue a Penalty Notice Advisory Letter to each parent/carer.  If any further unauthorised absences are recorded then a request is made to the Local Authority to issue a Fixed Penalty Notice Fine.  

The Local Authorities fine for a Fixed Penalty Notice is £120 per parents, per child.  This is reduced to £60 if paid within 21 days.


Further information on all of this information can be found in our attendance policy and/or parent leaflet, which is linked above.  Guidance from the Local authority is also referenced above.
