Clophill St Marys CofE lower school


Our school has a positive and pro-active ethos which places high value on attendance and punctuality, as well as valuing its partnership with parents/carers to promote good attendance.  Detailed information can be found in our Attendance Policy which can be found in our Policies section of the website.

Absence from school

If your child will be absent from school, we ask that the parent/carer contacts the school before 09.30.  The reason for the absence, as well as the expected date of return, should be given. If the date of return is unknown, then regular contact with the school is required until the child returns to school.

Holiday's within Term Time

All requests for holidays within term time must be submitted via this form.  This is required for all children from Reception upwards, including those who are non-statutory school age.

Holidays in term time can only be agreed by Mrs. Bingley, the Headteacher.  She will consider each absence application individually, although our policy has to be to NOT grant leave of absence during term time, other than in the most exceptional circumstances.
