The DfE enforces regulations regarding attendance and lateness. At Temple Grove, we believe all pupils from Reception to Year 6 are only able to achieve their full potential if they attend school regularly and on time.

The Consultant Head Teacher decides whether or not to authorise pupil absence from school.

School registers close at 9.10am.

Late arrival is recorded by the school. All lateness and absentees are reported to the DfE.

Temple Grove’s Attendance target is 100%.


All requests for holidays must be submitted to the Consultant Head Teacher. These must be for exceptional circumstances. No holidays must be arranged in term time.

Temple Grove has a clear attendance policy and parents will be fined for poor attendance.
