Absence during Term Time from Term 2 2022Back
From the start of Term 2, and in line with the Trust Attendance and Punctuality Policy, absence during term time will not be authorised unless there are very exceptional circumstances and never at the following times:
- KS1 and KS2 SATS assessments;
- If attendance is under 96%;
- If there would be more than 10 days absence in any academic year, unless these are clearly accounted for as unavoidable and have been previously discussed with the school e.g. medical appointments
If absences are not authorised, and they are still taken, the matter will be referred to the Attendance and Welfare Support Service and a penalty notice requested. If unauthorised holiday is taken, no further absences will be authorised without medical evidence.
