Attendance

Taking Holidays During School Time

Your child has a right to a full education at Cliff Lane Primary and research strongly indicates that absence from school has a detrimental effect on a pupil’s academic attainment.

  • There are 175 days (weekends and school holidays) available to use for appointments and holidays
  • There are 190 statutory school days in one year which your child needs to attend
  • The school will not authorise any holidays during term time
  • Missing 3 days of school unauthorised (6 sessions) will result in a fine

For further information about attendance, please read our attendance policy.
