Attendance & Absence

Fladbury is committed to promoting the welfare of children through regular school attendance. We know that every day lost to education can have a serious impact on their attainment and overall progress in school. We are therefore fully committed to promoting school attendance by providing an environment and ethos where children feel safe and can build positive relationships with their peers. We expect in return that parents ensure their child attends school regularly and punctually.

Please see the following website for more general advice, support and guidance on school attendance.


Further information can be found on the Worcestershire Children First Website regarding attendance and children missing education.

Holidays in term time are not authorised.  If a parent wishes to take their child out of school, they must seek permission 4 weeks in advance from the Headteacher and will only ever be granted if the request is considered as an exceptional circumstance.

If a child is unwell and unable to attend school, we ask parents to telephone the office before 10 am to let us know. Registers are checked each day for non-attendance and a telephone call is made to those parents whose children have not arrived at school by that time.

Please see this NHS website on "Is my child too ill for school?" for further advice and guidance
