Castle School

Attendance

The total number of pupils on roll is 185. Regular attendance is essential and we ask that you inform us by telephone, letter or a note in the Home/School Diary if your child is absent.

The school follows up unexplained absence as quickly as possible and the co-operation of parents is appreciated.  The school works closely with our Educational Welfare Officer who helps support attendance.

Parents are asked not to send children to school who are feeling unwell.

Applications for leave of absence should be made using the form below:
