Attendance and Late/Absence Procedures

If your child is absent for any reason, please contact the school office to let us know. 


Attendance at Morley is very high - usually well above national averages - but we do understand that sometimes absence is unavoidable. We do operate a first day absence 'chase up' procedure if parents do not notify us of absences.


Children are encouraged to maintain good attendance. Our attendance target for 2021-22 is 97.5%.


All absence requests are logged and parents informed in writing. Absences will only be allowed in exceptional circumstances and holiday absence will generally not be considered during term time, and not without supporting information which will include the pupil's attendance patterns. Routine medical appointments should be taken outside of school hours, although emergency appointments, and hospital appointments, are allowed as these are exceptional. Please see our attendance policy and other government and local authority guidance for more details.

Late procedures


If you know your child will be late to school, please notify the school office and book a school lunch if required as these are ordered from Scargill's kitchens by 9.30am.


Please bring all latecomers to the front door, through the school garden and report to the school office.  Thank you.

We have two places available in current Year 2, or for Year 3 in September.
