Attendance Explained

Here at St Joseph’s, we believe that every lesson is important & maximum attendance
and punctuality are valuable life skills. Taking your child out of school during term time may harm your
child’s academic progress. In line with Local Authority policy, absences may only be authorised at the
discretion of the Headteacher in EXCEPTIONAL circumstances.  A Leave of Absence Form needs to be completed and sent to the school office. (Please see our Attendance Policy).
