Attendance/Absence

ATTENDANCE

Attendance in school is a statutory requirement from the age of 5.

The school doors open at 8.40 am and registration is between 8.50 and 9.00 am. Arrival after 9.00 am is classed as late and is recorded as such on pupils’ attendance records. It is important for children to arrive at school punctually every day, unless they are unwell.  The school day ends at 3.30 pm for all pupils.

Our school's attendance target for 2015/2016 is 96%.

The school is required to track all pupils’ attendance which will be investigated if it is below 85%. If you have any problems with your child attending school, it is important to discuss this with the Headteacher at the earliest point.

Equally, if your arrangements for collecting your child alter, it is important that the class teacher is made aware.

ABSENCE

If your child is too unwell to attend school or is absent for any other reason, you MUST telephone or email the school office before 9.30 am on the first day of absence. There is no need to inform the office on each subsequent day of absence.

The school is legally responsible for your child and if we do not have prior notification of absence we will contact your by phone to confirm the whereabouts of your child. 

If we are unable to contact you, we may assume your child is missing and the Police may be contacted. Please send an absence note to your child’s class teacher on their first day back at school. An authorised absence can only be granted if the school receives notification of a valid reason for your child’s absence.
