A very warm welcome to Selling CEP School. My name is Amanda Adcock and I am the Trust Attendance Manager for OCMAT, the Trust of which your school is a part of.


Education lays the vital foundations of a child’s life.  Regular and punctual attendance at school is key to both academic and social development, which in turn will improve the life chances of children and young people and ensure that your child settles well, is happy at school and able to take advantage of all that Selling CEP School has to offer.


We hope that by working together, your Child’s journey with us is a happy and successful one.

Total of 32.9 hours per week (The expectation does not apply to pupils in Reception)   



Pupils arriving after 8.55am must enter school by the main entrance and report to Reception where you will be asked to sign them in.


It can be very distressing for children to go into class late on a regular basis and they are missing vital input points of learning. It may only seem 5 minutes, but this can quickly add up!



It is the parents’ responsibility to contact the school on the first day their child is absent by telephone or email before 9.30am.  This is a safeguarding issue requirement so that all parties know that your child is safe.  At Selling CEP School we operate a first day calling system.


If your child is unwell with a sickness bug we would ask that they remain at home until they are clear of any symptoms for 48 hours.


Our Family Liaison Officer (FLO) is Ms Clark and happy to work with both children and families to improve attendance and punctuality.  Please come and talk to us if you have any worries or questions.


Requesting a leave of absence

If you are needing to take an unavoidable leave of absence for your child please complete this form, which will be sent to Mrs Adcock our Trust Attendance Manager, who will respond at her earliest convenience. 

This can also be found on our website under Parents/Children - Leave of absence


Attendance Monitoring and Support


Miss Clark and Mr Paez monitor children attendance. The school wants to support families who are experiencing difficulties with absence. Please contact Miss Clark if there is anything the school can support you with.
