At Churcham Primary School, we recognise the importance of regular attendance. The overall level of attendance that we aim to achieve is 100%. Ideally, there should be no unauthorised absence. 

It is important pupils attend school everyday, Monday to Friday, during the published Term Dates, unless the reason for their absence is one that meets the school’s criteria for authorising absences, e.g. illness, non-routine medical/dental appointments, religious observance, educational visits or any other unavoidable cause.  

Our curriculum and timetables have been designed to maximise the time your child is at school. Missing even one day can adversley affect your child's learning and place them at a disadvantage to other pupils.

Legal Duty as a Parent

The parent of any child at Churcham Primary School has a legal duty to secure the regular attendance of that child. Failure to secure the regular attendance at school of a registered pupil is a criminal offence which can lead to prosecution of the parent(s) in a magistrates’ court.

If your child(ren) is unable to attend school, for whatever reason, then please contact us as soon as possible to inform us of their abscence. If you need to remove your child from school during term time then please view our policy document below and complete the absence request form. If you have any further question then please contact the school.
