Attendance and Registration

Research shows that there is a direct correlation between high levels of attendance and high levels of student attainment.

If you wish to report a student absence this can be done by emailing: MERoffice@maidenerleghschool.co.uk. The email should be sent from the email address that we have registered for the parent on our Managament Information System. Alternatively, parents can contact the school by telephone 0118 966 8065.

Parents are requested to notify the school before 8.40am each day their child is absent. Where a student does not register for a morning session and there is no explanation for that absence, the School Office will contact the parents to inform them of this.

Medical and dental appointments should not be made during the school day unless absolutely necessary, in which case an email or a signed letter from the parent is required. In addition, students must sign in and out at reception.

We do not expect any parents to request permission for holidays for their children during the school term unless there are exceptional circumstances. Any requests should be submitted to the school at least 15 school days before the holiday dates, using this form. The final decision rests with the school.
