Pupil Punctuality, Absence & Holidays

 

Each year group has specific start and finish times for their school day.  It is important to be on time so that your child does not miss some of their learning.  They may receive a late code or even an absence code for the session if they arrive after registers close.

 

If your child is not well enough to attend school, you should report this on the first day as soon as possible by contacting the school office (phone and leave a message or send an email).  You should also follow up the message if you have not heard back from us and keep us updated on each day of the absence.  It is our safeguarding duty and policy to contact every known number; visit the home address; and/ or contact the police if we are unable to ascertain why a child is absent from school.

 

Pupils should not take holiday during term time.  However in exceptional circumstances you may contact the head teacher (via the office) if you need to take your child out of school and this will be considered on a case by case basis.  The school's attendance policy can be found here:
