Important note

Unauthorised leave in term time could result in a penalty notice being issued.

These penalties are per parent per child, which means that both parents can be fined for each child – a mother and father taking two children out of school in term time could be fined £60 each for each child, making a total fine of £240 if paid within 21 days, or a total of £480 if paid after 21 days.

Every day in school is important for your child.

 

 

Please be in school for 8.50am. Arrival after this time will be marked as late.

Attendance for week ending 2 February was 96% which is an improvement. Punctuality was better, but we still need zero number of children coming to school late unless extreme circumstances prevent this.

St John the Baptist Catholic Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Attendance

Following the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold a penalty notice for unauthorised leave, the Education Welfare Service in Rochdale will now also be issuing penalty notice for unauthorised leave in term time. The parents of any child missing ten sessions (five school days) due to unauthorised leave (for example, family holidays) in term time will be issued with a penalty notice.
