School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you want to know our policy on something that is not listed, please ask the school office.
Changes in policy at Derbyshire County Council and the advice given to headteachers has changed since this Attendance Policy was written. Guidance is now that, while holidays in term time cannot be authorised except in the same exceptional circumstances, a fixed penalty notice will not be issued unless the holiday will cause the child's attendance to drop below 95%. Especialy early in the school year, the previous year's attendance will be looked at.
If you are thinking of requesting exceptional leave from school for your child, please request a form from the office and bring it back for Mr Lobb's attention as soon as possible and plenty of time before the absence.
