Attendance at Longhill Primary School

The school’s attendance percentage is generally at the 96% level, a reflection we think of the fact that Longhill children actually want to be at school.

In the event of a pupil’s absence from school, parents are requested to telephone the school prior to the start of school, or at least by 9.30 am, in order to provide a reason for the absence.

In line with our policy of safeguarding children the school office may ring you after that time if you have not been able to contact us.

In view of the requirements National Curriculum timetable and National Curriculum testing procedures and time-tables, parents are asked not to arrange holidays during term-time as this can affect a child’s progress significantly.
