Opening Times, Attendance and Punctuality

Attendance and Punctuality

At All Saints Academy we recognise the need for children to attend school regularly and punctually so that they get maximum benefit from the learning opportunities that are offered.  Regular attendance boosts academic achievement and enhances personal development. The school offers a variety of incentives to children to encourage them to attend school and is proud that attendance is excellent.

Absence from school

If your child is ill and is not going to attend school, it is essential that we know as soon as possible.

Either drop a note in to school, or contact us by telephone after 8.30am.  It is a legal requirement that you let us know your child's name, their class, the reason for absence and how long you expect them to be away from school.


Medical / Dental Appointments

Please advise the school as soon as possible if your child needs to leave school to attend an appointment.  However, parents should try to make routine appointments out of school hours or in the school holidays if possible, as time out of school disrupts pupils' learning.


Holiday Requests

If your child is absent from school for another reason, please let us know.  We would strongly advise parents to avoid taking holidays during term time.  Permission to remove your child from school during term time must be sought by completing an absence request form well before the event (obtain this from the school office).  The head teacher will need time to consider your request taking into account your child's attendance record (and is not obliged to consent). You will be informed if approval has been granted.  Children will be asked to make up any work they have missed.
