Parents and carers of the students at The Acorns School are required to ensure that they receive sufficient full-time education. Good school attendance is essential to ensure that all children and young people make the most of the educational opportunities available and achieve their full potential whilst ensuring that all students stay safe. By law, all children of compulsory school age must receive a suitable full-time education. As a parent or guardian, you have a legal responsibility to make sure this happens.

Your responsibility

How to help your child improve their attendance record:

  • Your child must come to school every day.
  • Ensure that they arrive at school on time each day.
  • Try to make hospital, doctor and dentist visits outside school hours.
  • Please inform school in writing of any appointments known in advance.
  • Share with school any medical appointment letters/cards in advance.
  • Don’t take holidays in term time – requests for family holidays in term time will not be authorised unless under exceptional circumstances. If something is stopping your child from coming to school, please let us know. Please contact the school on the first day of absence.
