Term dates and Attendance

Attendance and punctuality

We expect children to attend school every day unless they are sick. Please phone or send a note if your child is ill. If your child needs medicine you can give us permission to give them their medicine in school.

If your child needs the dentist or doctor please make the appointment for out of school hours. If you cannot avoid making an appointment during school time, please let the school know in advance. 

Please do not book holidays during term time. We report unauthorised absences to Hertfordshire County Council Educational Welfare Service which can fine parents or take legal action. 

Please pay particular attention to SATS and Assessment Weeks where full attendance is required.
