At Chillingham Road Primary School we expect outstanding attendance from every family.  The more time we have with your children the better we can teach them.  This is based on the belief that only by attending school regularly and punctually will children and young people be able to take full advantage of the educational opportunities available to them.

Our attendance statement explaining school policy regarding attendance and holidays during school time can be downloaded below.  Additional advice can be found on the council website
