Attendance and Absence

Gladstone Primary Academy follows Local Authority guidance on attendance and absence. Our current policy is in line with the Local Authority, and has been reviewed for 2017-2018.  A copy of our policy can be found below.

Holidays during the school term are not permitted.  If you intend to take your child out of school during term time you must contact the school at least 2 weeks beforehand and arrange to meet with our Assistant Head, Mr Fountain, to discuss this.  

The data also shows that in 2019, primary school children in Key Stage 2 who didn’t achieve the expected standard in reading, writing and maths missed on average four more days per school year than those whose performance exceeded the expected standard.

If your child is unwell this guidance wil help you work out if they are well enough to be in school.
