Phonics Testing for Year 1 pupils (& re-tests for some Y2 pupils)

June 10, 2019 @ 9:00 am – June 14, 2019 @ 3:00 pm

Please note that schools are expected to follow the Hampshire County Council Code of Conduct for legal intervention relating to term time absence and not to authorise pupil absence unless the reason for the absence is exceptional.   

Under the Code of Conduct, a penalty notice should be issued to parents where a pupil has 10 unauthorised absence sessions in the last 100 school sessions and there are no exceptional reasons why the pupil has been prevented from attending school.

Please note that if a child has any unauthorised absence during any formal examinations, testing or assessment as publicised via our school website or parent/carer newsletters this may contribute towards the issuing of a Penalty Notice for non-attendance.”
