Absence During Term Time

Absence During Term Time
For a student to reach their full educational potential, a high level of school attendance is essential. We consistently work towards a goal of 100% attendance for all students, however, we do accept that illness is inevitable on some occasions. Due to this, we would endeavour for every student to be as near 97% attendance as possible.

We ask that medical appointments are arranged for outside of school hours. Where this is not possible, parents are requested to opt for appointment times either at the start or end of the day so students do not miss a whole day of school.

Parents must collect children from the school Reception for such appointments as students are not permitted to leave the premises during the day unaccompanied. Registration is taken at 8.45am. If a student is absent, their parent must make the school aware of the reason by 9.15am and provide any further information that the school needs.

If no message has been received by 9.30am the school will phone or text the student’s parent for confirmation of absence and reason. Parents can make the school aware of absence via a letter, telephone call, email (enquiries@theroseland.co.uk) or a personal visit to the school Reception.

Leave of Absence requests must be made in writing to the Headteacher where they will be considered. We would request that these are handed in with a minimum of two weeks’ notice where possible to allow time to process all requests in a timely manner.
