Please see below information about attendance as taken from Denbighshire Council Website:

You have a legal responsibility to make sure your child attends school. If your child misses school without an acceptable reason, you could be fined or prosecuted.

Most absences for acceptable reasons will be authorised by the school. These include:

  • sickness
  • unavoidable medical or dental appointments (if possible, you should arrange these for after school or during school holidays) 
  • days of religious observance
  • exceptional family circumstances, such as bereavement 
  • an interview with a prospective employer or college

Your child’s school will not authorise absences for the following reasons: 

  • shopping during school hours 
  • day trips 
  • term time holidays
  • birthdays 
  • looking after brothers or sisters or ill relatives

If your child misses school without an explanation from you, or if the school is not satisfied with the explanation, the absence will be recorded as ‘unauthorised’, that is, truancy.

Although you may provide a reason for the absence, it is the school that decides whether the absence is recorded as authorised or unauthorised.

If you think there may be a reason why your child does not want to go to school, you should speak to your child’s class teacher for help and support.
