Absence Form and Absence Policy 

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  before the date of the requested absence.

Please complete the form below clearly explaining the reason for your child's absence.  Submitting this online form will trigger an alert in the School Office about your child's absence and we may contact you if we require any further information.

The NHS has produced some guidance to help parents understand when their child can and cannot attend school which you may find useful:

Only use this form to report illness. If you are requesting permission for a planned absence please use the planned absence request form above and send to the school office. The headteacher will then consider the request and authorise. All planned absences must be authorised in advance.
