Attendance Guidance

Missed school days are missed opportunities. We want every young person to achieve their full potential – with your help they can!


If your child is off school for any reason, it is important that you telephone the school by 9.30am on the first day of absence and on return you must provide the teacher with a letter explaining the reason for the absence.

Due to recent changes in Government Policy regarding holidays in term-time the following guidance from Torbay Council is -

‘Head teachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.’
