The staff and governors at Marsh Lane Primary School are committed to ensuring the highest
possible school attendance for all its pupils.
Our aim is to work alongside parents and families to ensure that pupil attendance is
above the national average. We are pleased to say that in the most recent published figures, our overall absence rate was 3.5% - compared to 3.9% nationally.
Holidays during term time
Please note that in line with government legislation, the school may only grant leave of absence to pupils in exceptional circumstances - not for family holidays.
If your child is poorly and cannot attend school, the absence should be reported by 9.30am at the latest. You can either ring the school or send a note with a sibling, but we must hear from parents directly rather than from other parents or children.
