Attendance

St. Paul’s Catholic Schools Federation believes that good attendance is central to good learning and achievement. A child’s attendance record is regarded as a serious matter. We record and monitor attendances a legal requirement and expect a minimum of 95% attendance.

You should contact us by 9.00am on the first day of absence if your child is ill either by telephone or in writing.

Please use the following numbers to contact us:-

Every absence from school must be covered by a note from the parent/carer. Absence should only be for genuine illness.

My child will be away on holiday during term time?
Please do not take your child on holiday during term time. It makes it difficult for your child to catch up with their work when they return. Holidays will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances otherwise holidays will be unauthorised and may result in the Educational Welfare Officer (EWO) contacting you and issuing you with a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN).
