Unauthorised Absence

We are very proud of our attendance rates.  We consistently achieve very challenging targets for attendance and we work in close partnership with any of our families who experience difficulty in supporting their children to maintain excellent attendance at school.

In response to changes in school attendance law, Hampshire County Council has reviewed its code of conduct.  This code sets out for all schools what actions must be taken for any young person with 10 or more sessions (5 days) of unauthorised absence from September 2015.

For your information, Hampshire County Council’s letter is shown here.  We would ask all our parents to read it and be aware of its contents.  Guidance for parents from the council can be found here.

Please see our latest letter on school attendance, along with information from Hampshire about penalty notices.  To request time off from school, please use this form and return addressed to the Attendance Officer.
