Good attendance (95% or better) is expected at Hall Meadow Primary School.  If your child is unable to attend due to illness please notify the school office on 01536 417627 as soon as possible.  There is a 24 hour telephone answering service to enable you to report an absence at any time.

The school does not authorise term time holidays.  From 1st September 2013, a new law gives NO entitlement to parents to take their child on holiday during term time. Any application for leave must only be in exceptional circumstances and Headteachers would not be expected to class any term time holiday as exceptional. Parents can be fined by the Local Authority and the initial Fixed Penalty Notice of £60.00 will be issued to each parent for each child (i.e. two parent family, two children = £240.00). 

Parents who take multiple holidays are subject to prosecution by the local authority.
