Attendance Policy

Education Penalty Notice Warning for Non-School Attendance

Leave of Absence request form

Holidays will only be granted in exceptional circumstances. Please be aware that unauthorised leave may result in the issue of a Penalty Notice under the provisions of the Education Act 1996. 

Attendance at Leigh St Mary's Church of England Primary School 

Attendance is very important in school and we place a great emphasis on all children being in school, on time and ready to learn. Mrs Ellison is our Pastoral Manager, please contact her if you have any questions about attendance. 


Please contact school at 9:00am every morning if your child is poorly.


Holidays in school time.

We follow the Government's guidelines when authorising holidays in school time. Only under very special circumstances can the Headteacher authorise any holiday in term time.  


If a child's attendance reaches 92%, you will receive a letter from Mrs Ellison to make you aware of your child's attendance, and give you the opportunity to come and speak about it. If your child's attendance reaches 90%, they will then be a persistent absentee, and a meeting will be arranged with Mrs Ellison.
