School Attendance

The staff of Glebelands School are committed, in partnership with the parents/carers, students, governors and the Local Authority, to building a school which serves the community and of which the community is proud. For our students to gain the greatest benefit from their education it is vital that they attend regularly and all students should be at school, on time, every day the school is open unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable.

However, parents should be aware that the law now enforces the position regarding holidays. The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013, state that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. The Headteacher should determine the number of school days a child can be away from school if leave is granted.
