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.
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.
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.
Attendance Ted and Punctuality Pup
We teach the chlidren about the importance of coming to school every day and being punctual.
Attendance Ted and Punctuality Pup are awarded to the classes with the best attendance and punctuality every week in our Monday Celebration Assembly. There is always a cheer when the awards are announced and Ted enjoys sharing his weekly learning diary with the children.
Below is a copy of our Attendance leaflet detailing the school day and giving a brief overview of our attendance policy/illness procedure. If you would like a paper copy, please visit the school office.
