    Student Absence

    Student Absence

    As a parent/carer it is your responsibility to notify the school on each day of absence, by calling 0118 937 4793

    Parents are reminded that dental and medical appointments should, wherever possible, be made out of school hours.

    It is the duty of a parent/carer of a child of compulsory school age to secure their education by regular attendance at school.  Following changes to the law a number of local schools, including The Avenue School, have implemented the use of Fixed Penalty Notices in relation to unauthorised absences during term time. 

    Please be aware that if you take your child out of school for any unauthorised leave of absence during term time, you may be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice. A Fixed Penalty Notice is issued per parent per child.
