Christ The King RC Primary School

Attendance and Punctuality

Congratulations to all children who are achieving 100% attendance this year. Regular attendance is crucial for a successful and rewarding school experience. Each term, children with the highest attendance rates are awarded certificates and gold, silver or bronze badges. There is also a special celebration at the end of the each term.

If your child will be absent from school, please report their absence by contacting us at 0161 681 2779. If we do not hear from you before 9.30 am, we will ring you to check on the safety and wellbeing of your child. 

Absences may be authorised for illnesses, medical appointments, religious observances, and exceptional circumstances such as bereavement. 

Holidays will not be authorised during term time. If your child is absent for 7 days within a half-term, you may incur a fixed penalty fine from Manchester City Council. 

If your child has less than 90% attendance, the equivalent of missing 19 school days in a year, the matter will be logged as Persistent Absence. Parents may be fined by the council and taken to court if there is no improvement.
