Worthington Primary School

Absence from school

Please ring or write on the first day of an illness to inform school that your child is poorly. We do encourage parents to arrange dental and medical visits during out of school hours.

Parents should not take pupils on holiday in term. All holiday leave in term time is at the discretion of the Head. Only in exceptional circumstances will the Head approve absence for up to 10 school days in any one year. Parents who are unable to arrange annual vacations in school holidays, are asked to complete a Holiday Form available from the school office. If permission is not given for annual holiday then a child’s absence will be marked as unauthorised.
