Attendance 2019-20

Attendance Policy, Information and Guidance

We aim to have whole school attendance above 97%.

We appreciate there may be times when absence is unavoidable eg sickness, but would request that appointments such as doctors/dentists be arranged outside of school time whenever possible.

Unauthorised absences or holidays may result in a fine being applied by
Durham County Council.

The Department for Education has confirmed that, from September 2015, the threshold for persistent absence will be 10% - ie attendance below 90% will be reported as persistent absence.
