Kingsgate Primary School

Attendance and punctuality

We expect children to attend school every day unless they are sick. Please phone or send a note if your child is ill. If your child needs medicine you can give us permission to give them their medicine in school.

If your child needs the dentist or doctor please make the appointment for out of school hours. If you cannot avoid making an appointment during school time, please let the school know in advance.

We strongly discourage holidays during term time and it is very rare for the school to give permission for children to be out of school. We report unauthorised absences to Camden Educational Welfare Service which can fine parents or take legal action.
