School starts at 9am
In order to ensure every child’s safety, if your child is going to absent from school, you must notify the office on the first day by 10am to let us know and also give the reason for the absence eg temperature. If your child has an infectious illness it is vital that we know so that we can monitor the situation. All absences must also be followed up with a letter clearly stating the dates and the reason for absence.
If your child has a school dinner and is going to be late to school, you must phone the office to notify them, as they calculate numbers for catering purposes by 10am.
Every child’s attendance is regularly monitored by the Education Welfare Officer. Any attendance below 96% is closely monitored.
If you need to take your child out of school for any reason, you must complete a “Request for time out of school” form and give it to the office at least one week before the absence is due to take place. The Headteacher is not allowed to authorise time out of school for holidays.
10.30 – 10.45am
Reception 11.45 – 1.15pm
Infants 12 – 1.15pm

It is very important that all children are brought to school and collected from school on time. Excellent punctuality has a very positive impact on your child’s learning experience.
