Attendance

The term dates for our school can be accessed here. You must familiarise yourself with these and make them known to your wider family.

 

From the 1st September 2013 there have been amendments to the regulations for attendance. At Barons Court we recognise the importance of regular attendance. The Pupil Registration Regulations amendment prohibits Headteachers from granting leave of absence except in exceptional circumstances and only when an application is made in advance. The amendment removes mention of holidays from the regulations. The Penalty Notice Regulations are amended so that Fixed-penalty notices (FPN) will have to be paid within 21 days for the lower £60 rate to apply, and allows just seven days for payment of the higher rate of £120. This reduces the possible payment period from 42 to 28 days.

 

 

The Importance of Attendance

At Barons Court we are working in partnership with children and their families to support good attendance. Take a look at the table below for a reminder of the importance of attendance.
