If your child is absent for any reason please ring school each day to notify us (unless you have stated a specific number of days).
We require daily calls to ensure your child is safe. Please ring the School number (0113) 2869427 and speak to a member of staff or leave a message on the answerphone for Mrs Ball.
The Government changed the Education (Pupil Registration) Regulations in relation to term time holidays on 1st September 2013.
As a result, Head Teachers can no longer allow any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. This means that holidays in term time will not be authorised and will be marked as an unauthorised absence in the school register.
Unauthorised absences may result in a Penalty Notice being issued under the provisions of the Education Act 1996 (as amended) which means that you could be fined for your child’s absence.
Note: Payment of a Penalty Notice (from September 2013), if paid within 21 days, is £60 per parent/carer, per child. If you do not pay within 21 days the fine is increased to £120 and you have a further 7 days to make this payment in full.
Non-payment of a Penalty Notice within the total 28-day period could result in the commencement of criminal proceedings in the Magistrates’ Court under Section 444 of the Education Act 1996.
The issuing of Penalty Notices relates to any unauthorised absence. Authorisation of absence is at the Head Teacher’s discretion and if your child is absent for any reason such as illness, you may be required to provide school with evidence of the absence such as a medical appointment card or prescription. Information on penalty notices is also available on the Leeds City Council and DFE websites.
If you are experiencing any difficulties affecting your child’s attendance, the school and the Cluster want to work with you to support you. Please contact the school in the first instance.
