At HGJS we really value attendance. We expect all children to have attendance consistently above 96%.
Children have 190 days in school and 175 days of holiday - we expect family holiday to be taken in holiday time.
New regulations regarding leave in term time came into force from 1 September 2013. Headteachers are no longer allowed to authorise leave during term time.
Unauthorised leave means parents could be issued with penalty notices and legal action being taken or your child losing their school place.
Parents must make an appointment to speak with the Attendance Officer / Headteacher if a request for absence in being made. This should be done at the earliest opportunity and before any tickets have been purchased.
