The attendance target for Holden Clough is 97% because we know that good attendance is the key to successful schooling and we believe our pupils can be amongst the best in Tameside.


LEAVE FROM SCHOOL: The current law does not allow parents to take a child out of school in term time for a holiday or trip.



The Local Authority monitors all school absences during term time. All schools in Tameside are required to have firm policies and stringent checks to ensure that there is a significant reduction in the number of absences during term time.



Please do not be offended if the amount of time your child is absent from school due to illness is challenged. Children need to attend school as often as possible. Children are often able to come into school when they are on medication.


PLEASE NOTE: The following are not acceptable reasons for absence: Shopping for clothes, illness of a family member, visiting relatives, having a full day off for a medical appointment, oversleeping, a family holiday, moving house.


Rewarding Outstanding Attendance

DO NOT send your child into school if they have any ONE of the following symptoms: (1) A HIGH TEMPERATURE (this mean they feel hot to the touch on their back or chest) - (2) A NEW, CONTINUOUS COUGH (this means coughing a lot, for more than one hour, or 3 or more coughing episode within 24 hours) - (3) A LOSS OR CHANGE TO SENSE OF SMELL OR TASTE (this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal)
