It is the statutory duty of parents to ensure that their child attends school. Additionally, the school is required in law to record the reasons for absences in its registers.
Please telephone the school by 9:10 am if your child is going to be absent. A parental letter, stating the reason for absence, is required when s/he returns.
The Educational Welfare Officer (EWO) monitors attendance and supports pupils and their families where there are school attendance issues.
