Absence Form and Absence Policy
The DfE is clear that regular attendance at school and children's progress are inextricably linked. At NRPS, we expect all children to attend school every day unless due to illness they are unable to come in. Only the Head Teacher can authorise planned absence and this will normally be only in the most exceptional circumstances. Parents of all children attending NRPS are required to request permission for their child to be absent from school during term time. This request must be submitted at least 2 full weeks before the date of the requested absence.
If your child has a planned absence coming up, please click here to download our absence request form.
If you would like to inform us about your child's absence from school, please complete the form below clearly explaining the reason for your child's absence. The School Secretary will be notified about your child's absence and may contact you if we require any further information.
