Your child’s school attendance is extremely important, you can find information on guidelines and procedures here.

The Radclyffe School has a zero-tolerance policy towards unauthorised absence. Please refer to The Radclyffe School Absence Authorisation Procedures for information on how to ensure your child has no unauthorised absence.

Please see our Leave of Absence letter with regards recent changes in the law for requests to take leave of absence during the school term.

Attendance is directly linked to progress with learning. Students are required to attend school for 190 days each year. If students do not attend school every day they are compromising their education and potential achievement.

Oldham Council has a target that students should be at school at least 95% of this time, but even this means missing nine days or 2 weeks, which is 50 lessons of School Absence.
