Attendance

The school academic year commences in September and concludes in July.  Your child is expected to attend for the full academic year.   We are very proud of the overall high attendance we have as a school.

 It is the responsibility of the parents to ensure that their child attends school on a full time basis.

A record of attendance will be kept in the form of a register completed twice a day, at the start of each session. Therefore each day at school your child will have two attendance (session) marks.

If your child is unwell you must contact the school before 9:00am. You can report an absence by:

  • leaving a message on the school answer machine at any time
  • emailing adminoffice@crookham-jun.hants.sch.uk 
  • reporting through Parentmail
  • phoning the school office

Term time holiday absence

If you are planning your next annual holiday, please remember you should not take your child on holiday in term time as it is disruptive both to your child's learning and to the school. Wherever possible please arrange for your holidays to coincide with the school holidays. Authorisation by the Headteacher will only be given in exceptional circumstances.

Unauthorised Absence

From September 2015 unauthorised leave of absence or during public exams, assessment and testing may incur a Penalty Notice, which would lead to paying a fine. To understand more about Penalty Notices please read the guidance leaflet below.   If a child misses 10 sessions in total (which is 5 days) then a penalty notice can be issued.

At Church Crookham Junior School, absence during in term time are most like to be authorised, where:

  • the application is made to the school well in advance
  • there are exceptional reasons for the requested absence

Individual circumstances of the child when considering any absence request.
