Headlinesthe school week

PoIinnttesroefst Dear Parents,
Well we have one week left to go and this has
NetwhtwgatWsehreunraeomgkhtwuageaygrgeefoveuhiscefulttatafisfaoogulno,wtninlrhftaaethieyfsldynoilro.ssedsrhuayeroelhfpaorw certainly been a big one in readiness!

We finished last week with the BJS Sleepover at
Bilton Grange on Friday. It was amazing to be
able to stay in such a fabulous house and right
on our doorstep! We wanted to thank all the
children for their great manners and behaviour.
The staff at BG commented on their politeness.

This week SATs results are in and the children have done
really well. I am so proud of them as a
collective. Our most vulnerable children have also
excelled themselves this year. Children will be
bringing results home with their school reports and
I am sure Yr6 parents will be as proud as I am.
In fact everyone will receive report this Friday and I
have been privileged to read many of them ahead of
coming to you. It strikes me I am fortunate to be the
leader of this school. It is not hard with the
children and families I/we serve!

NacommeptehteitHioanr!e Year 6 also performed their show 'The Next Big Step'
tthHoeetlnhpeewuBs:Ja-Sn)dadfamitmieoilny this year. It is a play about moving on to secondary
school and being the best you can be. Throughout
the play they looked back with funny and fond
memories of BJS. They performed brilliantly and
again did us proud. They have the values of BJS
running through them even when they are dressed
in costumes!

Have a pleasant weekend and we will be back next
week with some important dates for the year coming
up for you to pop in your diary.

Many blessings,

Mrs Norton

Notices LEAVE OF ABSENCE DURING TERM TIME
UPDATED INFORMATION FOR PARENTS

Your child’s progress academically as well as socially is our shared priority

The Supreme Court recently reached a decision in the case of Platt v Isle of Wight Council which has clarified the
law on unauthorised leave, including holidays, during term time. The parents of children of compulsory school
age are required to ensure that they attend school on a regular basis. The Supreme Court has made clear that
attending school ‘regularly’ means that the children must attend school on every day that they are required to do
so. As such, the parents of any child who is absent from school without authorisation for any length of time are
likely to be considered as committing an offence under s444 of the Education Act 1996. Head Teachers retain the
ability to authorise leave in accordance with the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006. When
considering such requests for a leave of absence, the school are obliged to act within the law. Head Teachers may
not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances relating to the
application. If the leave is granted, head teachers are able to determine the number of school days a child can be
absent for.

It is for the Head Teacher to decide what is ‘exceptional’ and it is at their discretion if the circumstances warrant
the leave to be granted. The school can only consider Leave of Absence requests which are made by the ‘resident’
parent. Each application for a leave of absence will be considered on a case by case basis and on its own merits.
Where applications for leave of absence are made in advance and refused, the child will be required to be in
school on the dates set out in the application. If the child is absent during that period, it will be recorded as an
unauthorised absence, which may result in legal action being taken against the parent(s), by way of a Fixed
Penalty Notice. Failure to make an application for leave in advance can also result in a Fixed Penalty Notice being
issued to the parent(s). All matters of unauthorised absence relating to a Leave of Absence will be referred to the
Attendance, Compliance and Enforcement Service of Warwickshire County Council It is important to note, Fixed
Penalty Notices are issued to each parent of each absent child, (for example 2 children and 2 parents, means
each parent will receive 2 invoices in the amount of £120 each, totalling £240 for both children, this is reduced to
£60 per child if paid within 21 days). Where a Fixed Penalty Notice is not paid within the required timeframe as set
out on the notice, the matter will be referred to Warwickshire County Council’s Legal Services to consider
instigating criminal proceedings under S444 Education Act 1996. Fixed Penalty Notices are issued in accordance
with Warwickshire County Council’s Code of Conduct for Penalty Notices.

Warwickshire Primary School pupils recorded 29,703 half day sessions of absence due to holiday in the
Autumn/Spring term during the academic year 2017/18. This is an increase of 6,256 on the previous year.

FeaturesYear 5 are following the heartstart training (an
initiative run by the British Heart Foundation)
which teaches them to: recognise a heart attack
and a cardiac arrest, help an unconscious
person, perform CPR, help someone
choking, respond to serious bleeding. The
children have responded in a mature and very
positive way and have been eager to learn. Make
sure you ask the children about DRs ABC...

"At first I was a bit worried but now I know what
to do I feel more confident I even used my new

skills when a lady fell off her bike"

"So impressed with the fact that my daughter is
able and confident to perform first aid."

Year 5 had an amazing morning of athletics Rugby in Bloom
at Harris. There were over 400 children
there from local schools!

We were visited by Rugby in Bloom
