Regular attendance and punctuality is important to us. If your child is going to be absent, please telephone the school office by 9.30 am on the first day of absence and then on every subsequent day of absence.

School begins at 8.55 a.m. and all pupils are expected to be in school or on the playground at this time.

Any child arriving later than 9.05 a.m. should enter school via the main entrance reporting to the School Office.

Term time holidays

New regulations came into effect on 1st September 2013 stating that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances and that failure to ensure your child’s regular attendance will result in both parents being fined.

‘Exceptional circumstances’ will be judged at the discretion of the Headteacher, however, this is very unlikely to include family holidays.

If you wish to request leave of absence during term time, please address this in writing to the Head Teacher.
