Attendance September 2021
I fully understand that many of you have been unable to travel over the last 18 months or so and will have had holidays booked for them then to be cancelled and rebooked. However, the DfE directives for schools on authorising term time holidays and absence has not changed. Therefore, it is vital that, with the disruption the children have had, the children attend school for the 190 days of the school year. As a parent I know that children become unwell and so sickness absence is unavoidable at times which is why the other absences, such as term time holidays, should be avoided and cannot be authorised.
