It is very important that children attend school regularly, are on time and ready to learn. When children are absent they miss a wide range of learning opportunities and this impacts on their progress and attainment.


If your child is unwell please inform the school office on the first day of illness. If children have vomiting and/or diarrhoea they need to stay at home for 48 hours following the last episode. This is to limit infection to others. You may find information on the following website helpful click on the NHS logo for further guidance :




Please note that the Governors of Ashton St. Peter’s do not authorise holidays in term time. Further information on our attendance procedures can be found in our Attendance Policy.
