Attendance

We pride ourselves on a high level of pupil attendance (see absence table below) and this emphasis needs constant reinforcement and support from parents.

We are grateful for the co-operation of parents who are asked to adopt the following procedure:-

Please telephone the school or send a note giving a reason for absence. If a telephone call is made initially, then a note should be brought on return to school.

  1. The school telephone number is 0121 559 1333.
  2. If a child is receiving treatment from a doctor or dentist and needs time out from school, please let the class teacher know the previous day.
  3. If a child is receiving medication (other than an inhaler for treatment of asthma) then please keep your child at home until the medication has finished.
  4. Normally, Under no circumstances will staff administer medicine. In exceptional circumstances, a written request may be made for the Head Teacher to administer medicine. This requires Parents to sign a disclaimer, which is available from the School Office

N.B. An unauthorised absence is without permission from a teacher or other authorised representative of the school. This includes all unexplained or unjustified absences.
