Disabled Access

East Barnet School is fully accessible in all areas for disabled visitors. Our on-site car park also has 3 dedicated disabled parking spaces, but please note a blue badge must be displayed when parking in a disabled space.

Attendance

If a student is going to be absent from school as a result of illness, a parent or carer must either phone the school or complete our online form as early as possible, on each day that the student is absent from school. If a student is absent for more than a few days then medical evidence will be required (labels from medication prescribed acceptable) for our records.

Direct all queries relating to a student’s absence to Ms T. Mulshaw.

Appointments

If a student has an appointment which cannot be made outside of school hours, then the student may only be excused from lessons for the duration of the appointment and should return to school immediately afterwards. Every student wishing to leave school early must have a letter from either the place of appointment or a note from a parent, in order to be excused from lessons. Students are also required to sign in and out at reception.

Holidays

Holidays are not permitted during term time and if taken, the family could be issued a fine and an unauthorised absence will be recorded on the student’s permanent record.

Only in exceptional circumstances, will a student be granted time out of school. If you would like to be considered, the request must be put in writing to the Headteacher at least two weeks prior to the date absence. The Headteacher will review each request and respond accordingly with permission.

Lateness

Students who arrive late for registration will receive a late detention at lunch time. The length of the detention is dependent on their Year group and how late they are.

Truanting

Students who truant will be given community service in school and can also be put on report.

Persistent Absence

Students whose attendance falls below the school average (currently 96%) will be monitored closely by the Head of Year and Attendance Officer. If no improvement is made in the short term, students will be referred to the Educational Welfare Officer.

If a student is missing from registration and a call has not been made on their behalf to explain the absence, then a text will be generated to prompt parents and carers to phone the school.

Rewards

At EBS we commend students who achieve 100% attendance each term. These students are awarded a badge and certificate which automatically enters them in the termly prize draw.
