Parents have a responsibility to ensure that their children receive full time education. Regular attendance is essential if children are to progress with their learning. Our school day is divided into two registration sessions so, for example, one full day of absence will be recorded as two sessions.
Please ring to report your child's absence on 01763 260432, option 1
We ask that non urgent appointments such as dental checks and routine vaccinations are made outside of school hours wherever possible.
If your child has a hospital or specialist appointment please bring the letter to the school office where a copy can be placed on their file as proof of authorised absence.
To collect your child during the school day please visit the school office to sign your child out of school.
Other Absence Requests
Children who are registered at Meldreth must, by law, attend school regularly. The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 amended the previous Education Regulations (England) 2006 removing the Headteacher’s discretion to agree term time leave. As a result, all leave taken in term time will be unauthorised unless the absence is for exceptional circumstances.
