Keiss School, in line with local authority policy, operates a three day rule for dealing with unexplained pupil absence.
It is vitally important for parents to note the following in relation to any pupil absence from school;
Contact the school before 9:15am otherwise this is recorded as an unexplained absence
If you know that your child will be off school please inform us in advance.
If notification of the absence or the reason for the absence is not given the school will telephone the parents.
Pupils are not allowed to leave the school or school grounds during school hours.
Appointments with family doctor/dentist should be made out with school hours
School work will not be given in advance for holidays taken in term time.
If frequent unexplained absences occur these will be referred to the Area Education Office.
Parents who wish to take a child on holiday during term time must request permission of the Head Teacher. If parents have no control over the dates of annual leave, permission is possibly granted. It should be noted that holidays taken during term time are recorded as unauthorised absence.
