All jewellery is inappropriate in a school situation. Only small stud earrings should be worn and removed for P.E and swimming .

Attendance

School attendance

Parents are required by law to make sure their children attend school regularly. For further information see the Education Act (1996) Section 444.

Children’s Services attendance staff deal with issues concerning pupils who are not attending school regularly.

Every school has access to an Attendance Improvement Officer for help and advice on issues concerning attendance. They can be contacted through your child's school or on

0344 800 8020.

Can my child take time off during term time?

Headteachers can allow time off during term time. However, the Department for Education has made it very clear that a headteacher must only authorise such absences in exceptional circumstances based on the individual facts of the case.

It is not an entitlement and is completely at the discretion of the school’s headteacher. Schools should not authorise absences if they believe it will have a negative impact on a student’s education or if the absences are during school exam periods or SATs. The decision made is final and there is no opportunity to appeal.

Parents can be fined for taking a child out of school during term time without the school’s permission.
