We will, as our pupils are growing and learning with us, care for, support and safeguard them whilst striving to encourage them to be responsible citizens and do the same for each other and their wider community.
We will strive to ignite our pupils’ desire and enthusiasm to learn without limits.
We will aim to encourage our pupils and school community to develop academically and socially which will develop their desire to explore the wider world, skilled and equipped to find out even more.
Following Government regulations, school will no longer be able to authorise holidays during term-time. This means the Headteacher has no choice but to refuse any applications for holidays. Parents/carers should only apply for time away from school in exceptional circumstances only. If parents/carers take their child out of school for holidays without prior written consent from the Headteacher, we have been instructed to enter this in the registers as unauthorised.
Parents/carers must not book any holidays or flights during time-time as all holiday requests will be declined and your child's absences will be recorded as unauthorised.
We realise that this may cause concerns for some of our parents/carers and that cost is one of the reasons that requests are made for holidays during term-time, however absences from school impact on children's learning. Children at Parkroyal Community School are expected to maintain an attendance percentage of 97% or above.
We appreciate that this will be unwelcome news for many of you, but we are subject to Government Regulations.
If you do feel that your request for leave of absence is exceptional, please put your request in writing either by email or complete a Request for Leave of Absence form.
