Term time holidays

To clarify the school’s position in relation to term time holidays:

The school will continue to apply the Government Guidelines for authorising term time holidays. These will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances – please see existing school Attendance Policy for more information.

Where a holiday has not been authorised the school will follow recent guidance from the Local Authority. Upon a student’s return to school, their 12 month attendance figure to that date will be examined. If the student has 94% attendance or less in the previous 12 months then it is quite likely that a fine will be issued.

The school has decided that any external exclusions will not play a part in the overall attendance figure for any student. The school’s Attendance Policy is under review to bring it into line with recent guidance from the Local Authority.
If you wish to apply for leave of absence, a form is available on request from the School Office or alternatively this can be downloaded from the Forms section of the website.

Parental ePortal Applications

Thank you to those Year 7 parents/carers who have applied for Parental ePortal access for their child/children.

We are working our way through the applications and hope to be able to send usernames and passwords out by the end of September.

If you receive your username and password and are experiencing difficulty with accessing ePortal,  please contact the School Office or email enquiries@belperschool.co.uk.

Measles, chicken pox and shingles

At any time we may have a number of students who, because of low immunity to disease, are at risk if they are exposed to measles, chicken pox or shingles. Please let the School Office know immediately if your child is suspected of having any of these conditions.

Your child is not at any risk whatsoever from this situation. However, the health and well-being of students who are at risk, depends on the co-operation of our parents/carers.
