If you are looking for a place for your child in Reception 2024, please come and meet us on 6th December 4-5pm or 10th January 2024 4-5pm


At Cavendish Close Infants we celebrate attendance with the children by awarding certificates, stickers and prizes.

We are unable to authorise term time holidays unless they fit Derby City Council’s criteria of “Exceptional Circumstances”.   If parents choose to take holidays during term time, the absences will be unauthorised, and parents could incur a fine of £60 per week, per child, per parent.  You can download the form here: Application for Leave of absence.


Derby City Council have produced some information for when to keep your child off school, it is available here: Illness

For information regarding infection control and childhood illnesses please see below.
