Regular attendance and punctuality to The Dolphin School is essential for all of our pupils to make good progress, achieve their full potential and consequently have better chances in life.

Every pupil at The Dolphin School, in line with the Government's expectations, is expected to maintain a minimum attendance level of 95%. It is the responsibility of everyone in The Dolphin School community to ensure they achieve this. The school monitors the attendance and punctuality of all pupils and constantly and reviews these.

Each year there are over 180 days for holidays, shopping, birthday treats, non urgent medical and dental appointments and events which should never fall within learning time. The school will not authorise absence for such reasons.

The school's Attendance Target is 96%.

To request a leave of absence for your child please complete and return the Absence Request form.  This should be returned to the office at least 10 days before the required absence, retrospective requests will not be authorised.
