At our school we promote excellent attendance to enable pupils to take full advantage of the educational opportunities we offer. Attendance is monitored daily and the school works closely with families to support good attendance. We ask parents to ensure that children arrive in school in good time for registration each day. The day starts at 8:50 a.m and children will be collected and welcomed into their classes by their teachers.
