It is the responsibility of the parent to ensure that their child attends school regularly. Children can not receive a full time education if they arrive at school late.

At Ravenscroft we value each young person as a member of the school community and positively encourage regular attendance at school.If your child is going to be absent from school or late please contact the school office staff as soon as possible to inform them of the reason for absence.

If your child is unable to attend school please let us know on the first day of their absence, if you do not a member of staff will contact you by telephone, letter or home visit. On your child’s return to school please send a letter with them clearly stating the reason for absence.

Whilst we realise that doctors and dentist appointments are sometimes necessary during the school day we would urge that when possible, they be made out of school hours.
