At Peafield Lane Academy we are working hard to achieve attendance levels which are up to the standards set by with government guidelines. From September 2013 'holidays' in term time are no longer authorised absences and we ask our families to endeavour to keep their children at school whenever possible. If you choose to take your child out of education for a holiday please fill in a form which is available at main reception and give us at least 4 weeks notice. Kindly note that unauthorised absences may lead to a fixed penalty fine being issued. If, however, you do need to take your child out of education due to exceptional circumstances, please come in and talk to us and we will endeavor to support you.
If your child is ill then please inform us as soon as possible on the first day either by ringing the school on 01623 460366, texting us on 07786 208896 or popping into main reception. This will enable us to code your child's absence correctly.
Our attendance (at 20th November 2017) is 96.19%
Total authorised absences are 2.71%
Total unauthorised absences are 1.11%
