Attendance & Timekeeping
Greatham Primary School believe in working with parents to improve punctuality and attendance.
If your child is absent from school please phone school as soon as possible to tell us why your child is absent, and when they are expected to return. The school phone number is: 01420 538224
. On your childs return to school please bring in a note to explain the absence.
As a school we are unable to grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances (i.e. a parent returning from Afganistan or a family funeral). Please see below our exceptional circumstance form.
Please also see the leaflet below on 'Information on Penalty Notices for non-attendance at school'.
If a child has any unauthorised absence during any formal examinations, testing or assessment as publicised via our school website or parent/carer newsletters this will result in the issuing of a Penalty Notice for non-attendance.
