We ask parents to make contact with the school on the first day of absence, and our Attendance Officer will follow up with parents that we have not heard from on the same morning.
To report your child's absence, please contact us by phone, in-app notification, or email:
Preston Primary Absence Line: 01803 607589
National policy no longer allows schools to authorise holidays. Special leave may however be granted in "exceptional circumstances".
These circumstances include:
- Religious Observance
Our policy on this is shared with most schools in Torbay. The full attendance policy can be found within the policy section of this website.
Please see link below which is a briefing paper following the outcome of the Isle of Wight case.
