The government are very clear that children do not miss any of their education unnecessarily and any absence during term time should only be authorised under extenuating circumstances. We recognise the importance of upholding the government directive however, we also recognise that the special circumstances in which we operate. We have many families who, owing to operational commitments of the work place, are unable to be together during the academy holidays and indeed they are separated for lengthy periods of time during the year. In light of this we try to offer as much flexibility as possible when considering requests for absences during term time. Please note that absences must be requested by the parent with whom the child normally resides. We do ask that requests for time away from the academy are completed with as much detail as possible so that a swift decision can be made. Once requests have been received they will be processed within a week and the decision forwarded to you. If you have not received a decision within 5 academy days please contact the office.


At Cherry Tree Academy we love to use the fantastic facilities available to us in this beautiful part of Norfolk. We enhance children's learning with regular support from the local community and will often take a trip out and about in our local our area. We regularly walk to Marham Village, surrounding areas including RAF Marham. We ask all parents / carers to sign an annual form giving their authority for children to take part in local visits without the need to send additional authorisation forms for every trip we do. We will always let you know if your child is off site and where they are.


Should your child require medication whilst under the care and supervision of the academy staff this form must be completed. The staff at Cherry Tree Academy will not give your child medicine unless you complete this form and send it to the office using your logged email address and unique password. Please ensure that the medication is in the original packaging as dispensed by the pharmacy and prescribed for your child. Our Administration of Medicine Policy details our policy and procedures for administering medicine to children in our care.


In the interests of your child's safety we do ask that you deliver and collect your child from the school playground. We also know that it is not always possible for you to collect your child and sometimes things happen at short notice. You may choose two additional people to collect your child without giving us prior notification (although we would always prefer this). Please let us know if your child's drop off and collection arrangements alter so we may update our records.
