Parental Reminder

Parental Reminder

During our recent review of our whole school attendance for this academic year (2017-18) it is apparent that a larger than usual number of families took their children out of school for family holidays, notably during the Autumn term.

We’d therefore like to take this opportunity to remind all parents that in the forthcoming academic year (2018-19) we will not authorise any leave of absence, including family holidays, except in very rare circumstances (in line with government policy) because there is clear evidence that any absence from school can and does impact on children’s attainment.

Therefore if a child is absent from school due to a family holiday please be aware that these absences will be marked as unauthorised in the register and a Penalty Notice fine may be issued to you by Salford City Council on your return. Also, where there are two parents who both have responsibility of their child(ren), you will receive a Penalty Notice fine each, per child.

We do thank the vast majority of our families for continuing to ensure that holidays are taken out of term and do hope that we can continue to work with all our families to ensure students are attending school as often as possible.

Yours sincerely
Mr A Campbell
Deputy Head
