Regular attendance and punctuality are essential if pupils are to gain the most from their time at Roding. Parents/carers are responsible for ensuring that their children arrive on time every day.

A child should only be absent if they are not well enough to attend and parent/carers must telephone the school and send a letter giving a reason for any absence.

Attendance and punctuality records are checked weekly by the school’s Education Welfare Officer (EWO) who will be asked to visit families where levels of punctuality or attendance are unacceptable. Court orders and fines are now imposed on parents/carers whose children are regularly late or absent.

Leave of absence

 If you wish your child to leave the school during the day for any reason e.g. to attend a clinic, a written request must be made to the school. No child will be allowed out of school without parental consent. 

Time off during Term Time 

Time off for holidays will not be granted in term-time. Any other requests for absence, other than dental or medical appointments, must be made in writing and may be agreed at the discretion of the Headteacher. Absences not agreed by the Headteacher will be recorded as unauthorised and remain on a pupil’s record. Redbridge authority has a zero-tolerance policy towards term time absences. As a Redbridge school Roding follows this policy and parents may be fined if they take their child out of school without the permission of the Head Teacher.
