Attendance

Parents often contact us to request a leave of absence for their child during term time.  In such cases a form seeking permission needs to be completed (see PDF below or a paper copy can be obtained from the school office).

For many years now we have  not actually been  allowed to authorise holidays that are taken during term time.  If absence during term is caused by a holiday then the code ‘G’ is applied and this is recorded as ‘unauthorised absence’.  Fines can be given by  Dorset  Council  for holidays that are 5 (10 sessions) days or longer. 

Further information about attendance policy can be found in the statutory information section of our website.
