Attendance & Absence

Legal Intervention

St Mary’s School works closely with the School Attendance Team of Dorset County Council. High levels of unauthorised absence, for any reason, could result in a referral to consider legal action. The School Attendance Team has the power to issue a Fixed Penalty Notice or to consider further legal action where appropriate.

Who to contact in school

To report a student absence please contact 01929 424909 and speak to a member of staff or leave a message and we can phone you back.

To discuss any concerns, the first point of contact in school is your child’s teacher or the Headteacher, Mr Frame.
