Mary Elton Primary School

Mary Elton Primary School


It is our aim at school to celebrate achievement. Full attendance is a critical factor in ensuring positive educational outcomes for our students. The school will actively promote and encourage 100 per cent attendance for all students.

Our school will give a high priority to emphasising to parents and students the importance of regular and punctual attendance. We recognise that parents have a vital role to play and that there is a need to establish strong home school links and communication systems that can be utilised whenever there is concern about attendance.

Mary Elton Attendance Policy

Appendix 1 - Mary Elton Information

The school will not authorise term time holidays and we ask that our parents abide by this. Any exceptional requests for leave during term time, should be made 1 month in advance of the proposed absence and should be completed in writing on the Schools ‘Request for Leave of Absence’ form (see appendix 2 for further information)

We will reply to the request promptly to confirm if the request has been authorised or not. Please note any leave of absence (holiday) in term time is likely to result in a penalty notice being issued.
