Children should be in school by 9am when registers are taken. If your child is not going to be in school due to illness or an appointment please let us know as soon as possible either by calling the school office (messages can be left), or by email. If your child needs prescribed medicines due to an illness these must be brought to the office and an 'administration of medicine' form can be completed (please see below).
Absences are recorded as authorised or unauthorised according to criteria set by the Department for Education. In line with DFE regulations around pupil leave of absence, the school does not routinely authorise holidays during term time as these are no longer considered to be ‘exceptional circumstances’. Absence due to holidays in term time may result in the issuing of a Penalty Notice by North Yorkshire County Council.
