At Ilketshall St Lawrence School we expect children to attend school every day, as long as they are fit and healthy enough to do so.

Research shows that pupils who attend school regularly are more likely to do well in the future. Regular attendance helps children to develop their confidence and to make and keep lasting friendships.

School absence

If your child is too ill to attend school please contact us either in person at the school office or telephone 01986 781315 and select option 1 for our absence line. If your child has a medical appointment you need to notify the school in advance, we also ask for a copy of the appointment letter or card. Only take time off for the appointment, not the whole day.
