At Bonnygate we believe that every day in school is important. Children who come to school every day, on time and suitably dressed and equipped for school will have the very best opportunities to achieve.
We expect every child to have at least 96% attendance. This means that you should attend school for at least 183 days out of a possible 190. Don’t forget that with school holidays, non-pupil days and weekends you have 175 days to take holidays, visit the dentist or have routine appointments.
Requests for holiday leave
Family holidays are no longer allowed to be taken during school time. This is in line with government policy. With regard to religious holidays a leave of absence form needs to be submitted to the headteacher.
For full guidance please see our attendance policy attached here.

Every day, on time
Don’t forget, if you come to school every day, on time, your name will be added to our weekly draw to win an educational prize. The draw takes place very Friday morning in celebration assembly. You have to be in it to win it!
