Greatham Primary School



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.

Care Aspire Achieve If your child is starting year R in 2020 please visit us on our open afternoons on Friday 8th & Tuesday 19th November - contact us on 01420 538224 to arrange a visit.
