Ofsted Inspectors asked that the school ensured that parents understood the link between regular attendance and achievement.  Those children who attend Woodhall School regularly make 'Good Progress' and it is essential for your child’s education that absences are kept to a minimum.

Your child should achieve Green for attendance for each and every term.

Parents should complete a ‘Leave of Absence’ form explaining/ detailing the circumstances for leave during term time. Discretion to authorise such leave is with the Headteacher who will also take account of previous attendance records.

The Headteacher can authorise absence for illness and medical appointments but will invite parents for discussion with School Nurse and School Attendance Improvement officer if such absences are felt to be above normal levels.
