On Thursday 23rd Reception children will be taking part in Elmer day, so they are invited to wear multicoloured clothes to school to celebrate 35 years of Elmer. We welcome the rest of the children to wear comfy clothes for Book Trust and can bring their favourite book to school, to share with their peers. £1.00 donations will be going to our charity of choice.

Earlsdon Primary School

As you are aware, in response to new government guidance we have reviewed our Attendance Policy. DfE guidance stresses the importance of good attendance for all children to support their attainment, wellbeing and wider life chances. When a
child’s attendance falls below 90% this is a cause for concern for schools and local authorities– 10% absence equates to a child being absent for 1 day or more a fortnight across a full school year. Please note that the new DfE guidance also states that leave of absence should only be granted in exceptional circumstances, and as such holidays taken during
term time will not be authorised. If leave of absence is unauthorised by the school, the government requires the school to follow up such absences with a Penalty
Notice Fine of £60 to each parent and for each child. (Collection of the fine is not administered by the school and the money collected is not given to the school.) If a parent thinks that their leave of absence request is due to exceptional circumstances,
they should contact school without delay and before arrangements are entered into or money is committed.
A leave of absence request form is available from the school office or from the school website.
