Time away from learning

We will now only authorise absence in extreme circumstances and this is at the discretion of the Headteacher and Governing Body.  Holidays will not be authorised.  Please click here for our Attendance Policy.

At Beccles Primary, if a child has 5 or more sessions (half-days) of unauthorised absence, a fixed penalty notice will be issued.

Attendance Monitoring

Every week we monitor the absence and lateness within the school. At the end of each half term we will send letters to the families of all children which fall into the following catagories:

Less than 80% attendance = deemed as being a persistant absentee

Less than 85% attendance = deemed as being at risk of becoming a persistant absentee

Less than 90% attendance = noted that we are monitoring your child’s attendance closely

Although we understand that some of the absence may be due to illness or unavoidable time away we will still send the letter as we are expected to attempt to support children with poor attendance, irrespective of the reasons.

Reporting Absence

It is important that if your child is absent that you inform the school office that morning.  Please ring 01502 713281 and leave a message, stating your child’s name, class and reason for absence.
