ATTENDANCE

All pupils are expected to attend school every day and on time, in line with government guidance and our Attendance Policy .

ATTENDANCE EXPECTATIONS

Children are expected to be in school every day, unless they are too unwell, or have covid symptoms. If you are not able to bring your child to school, you must report the absence by 8:50am by calling 0121 566 6666 (Option 2)

Families not in school, will receive a phone call or a home visit, if we are not able to contact you.

If there is a not a valid reason for the absence, then it will be classed as an ‘Unauthorised Absence’ and in line with Birmingham City Council procedures for attendance, we will do all that we can as a school to support you in improving your child’s attendance, before taking legal action.
