Attendance & Punctuality


At Streatham Wells Primary School we believe that good attendance is essential if our children are to take full advantage of school life and gain the educational and social skills which will equip them for their futures. It is important too, that children arrive at and leave school on time.

Please have a read through our schools attendance policy below:


Attendance & Punctuality Policy



Holidays Outside of School Holiday


There are thirteen weeks of school holidays each year (a quarter of the year) and we firmly believe that family holidays should be taken during these times.  In very exceptional circumstances a child may be entitled to two weeks holiday a year outside of these times but this is strictly at the discretion of the Headteacher and, as a school, we strongly discourage additional holidays as they lead to children becoming behind with their learning.

If you request time off for your child/children, please fill in the form below and return to the office:
