Coppice Valley Primary School

Respect, Pride, Choice




By law parents have a duty to educate their children.

In order to facilitate this process, parents with children at Coppice Valley are expected to:

  • inform school by telephone (01423 563760) on the first morning of any absence before 9.30am
  • provide a note, in addition to the telephone call, to cover the absence on the child's return to school
  • ensure that their child gets to school on time (8.55am)
  • try not to take family holidays during term time
  • ask permission from school for time off for ‘special circumstances’. Absences without permission from school will be registered as unauthorised.

Application for holidays in term time

Local authority letter to parents regarding holidays in term time



The school will:

  • contact parents on the first day if there is unexplained absence
  • consult parents if it is felt that authorised absence is affecting progress
  • encourage punctuality and good attendance through the attendance award for classes
  • discuss with parents any problems with attendance and punctuality.
  • in some cases where attendance is consistently poor (specifically if attendance falls below 90%) despite the above, the school may decide to contact the Educational Social Worker to offer support.

Please see the Policies section of the website for more information on attendance
