Billing Brook School

Pupil Attendance

We believe that Attendance matters and encourage all parents to ensure their child attends school on a regular basis.

Attendance is monitored by Mrs Kennedy, Deputy Headteacher and Phase Leaders. Parents will be informed of any concerns and in the case of any excessive medical absence advice may be sought from the child's doctor. All efforts will be made to find solutions regarding absence and to support parents in ensuring their child attends school. Billing Brook uses The Education Inclusion and Partnership Team (EIPT), part of The Local Authority for advice, this is also an impartial service for parents.

Absence for holidays during term time is unauthorised in line with national guidance and may result in a fine being administered by the EIPT.
