At Auriol Junior School we expect excellent attendance in order to ensure a good education for your child. During term time, your child should attend school regularly unless he or she is ill or the school has authorised their absence. Regular attendance now means 100% of the time the school is open unless you have the permission of the Head Teacher to be absent. Such requests must be submitted using the Leave of Absence Request form below. Please allow a minimum of one week for us to consider such requests and respond to you.
If your child is unwell and unable to attend school, please ensure you let the school know on the first day of absence with a brief outline of their condition. If we do not receive a reason as to why your child is absent, they may receive an unauthorised mark. Where possible please provide the school with medical evidence such as a doctor’s appointment card or letter, especially where children are absent for more than a few days.
If your child is unwell and you are in any doubt about whether or not they can attend school, here is a useful link to some guidance from the NHS: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-body/is-my-child-too-ill-for-school/
