Attendance & Absence


Attendance at Morda is good and we work hard to ensure it remains so. When a child is ill or cannot attend school for another reason, we ask that parents inform the school as early as possible. It is the school’s first priority to ensure that children are safe. If we do not hear from parents, we will phone anyone connected with the family until we establish that the child is safe. If we are unable to contact anyone within approximately 2 hours, we will notify the police and/or the educational welfare service in order to assist in establishing your child’s whereabouts.


Term-time holidays

Term-time holidays are only authorised in exceptional circumstances. If parents are thinking of taking children out of school during term-time, it is advisable to consult the headteacher as early as possible.
