We take attendance very seriously at Spring Lane Primary School. We expect the children to be in school and ready to learn every day. No holidays will be authorised in term time. If your child's attendance drops below 95% you will be invited for a meeting to help us support you in improving their attendance.
Holidays During Term Time
Please note that we can no longer authorise any holiday taken during term time. Since September 2013 it has become a criminal offence to take your child out of school during term time and you will be breaking the law. You will be issued with a penalty notice which may lead to you being fined and potentially prosecuted!
Current penalties are as follows:
An initial fixed penalty notice of £60 is issued to each parent for each child.
If your child is ill and cannot attend school, please call us the first day they are absent on 01604 639114 to let us know.
School starts at 8.55am every morning and finishes at 3.15pm every afternoon. However, school is open from 8.45 to ensure that your child is in class ready to start their day.
