Danesholme Infant and Junior Academies are committed to providing an education of the highest quality for all pupils. We believe it is extremely important for pupils to attend regularly and on time. This will give them the best opportunity to progress and succeed at school.
Ensuring a child’s regular attendance at school is a parent / carer’s legal responsibility and permitting absence from school without a good reason, may result in prosecution.
At Danesholme Infant and Junior Academies we:
• provide a welcoming and caring environment where all members of the Academy feel secure and valued,
• expect students to arrive on time every day,
• will support parents in their legal responsibility to ensure their child attends school regularly and on time,
• believe leave of absence should not be taken during term-time. We will not authorise requests for leave of absence during term-time, except in exceptional / unavoidable circumstances.
How to notify the Academy of an absence
If your child is unable to attend school due to illness or unavoidable circumstances, please contact the Academy on each day of absence by calling and leaving a message on 01536 741732 or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
Parents must inform us of any planned absence in advance, this includes unavoidable medical appointments during the school day. Evidence of the medical appointment will be needed.
To inform us about a planned absence you must complete a leave of absence form which can be found here.
