Leave of Absence

At Great Chesterford C. of E. Primary Academy, we want all children to have the best possible attendance at school to enable each and every child to reach their full potential.There is a strong link between good school attendance and achieving good results for children.

Parental support is critical in ensuring that children achieve in education, and support and guidance is always available from our school. We know that we need to work together with parents/carers to support our children to attend school and to be successful. For children whose attendance gives cause for concern this will be discussed at parents consultation meetings. If any individual’s attendance continues to give cause for concern, this will be followed up in line with school policy and DfE guidelines.
