Attendance

To get the best out of school and all it has to offer, children need to come to school every day and be on time.

Doors open at 8.45am and school starts at 8.50am.  If your child arrives after 8.55am you should come to the office and sign your child in.  Any child arriving this way will be marked as ‘Late’ in the register.

School finishes at 3.00pm for Reception and 3.10pm for Year 1 and Year 2.

If your child is off school due to illness or an appointment, please contact the school office between 8.30am and 9.30am, explaining why they will not be with us.  If you have not informed us of your child’s whereabouts we have to make contact with you as part of our safeguarding process.  If your child is going to be in late after an appointment we ask that you inform us as to whether your child will need a school dinner.

Attendance is monitored regularly by the local authority.  We will inform you if your child’s attendance becomes a cause for concern or falls below 95%.

 

Holiday/Leave of absence from school

The school will not authorise time off for family holidays/events. Please ask in the office if you require a copy of the updated Attendance policy.  Application forms for leave are available from the school office and need to be completed for any days off from school which are not related to illness.

 

We teach the chlidren about the importance of coming to school every day and being punctual.  Punctuality Pup and Attendance Ted are awared to the classes with the best attendance and punctuality every week in our Friday Celebration Assembly.  There is always a cheer when the awards are announced and Ted enjoys sharing his weekly learning diary with the children.
