Important Information for Parents and Carers

Reporting Absences

Please phone on the first day of absence leaving your child’s name, class and reason for absence. This needs to be done every day that your child is absent from school. These messages may be left on the school answer phone or delivered in person to the office. If we have not heard from a parent/carer by 9:00a.m, as to why their child is absent from school we will ring all of the contact numbers registered for that child until contact is made.

Holiday Requests

Holidays during term time will no longer be authorised. The Government has changed the law; no holiday request forms will therefore be available. If you feel that you have exceptional circumstances you will need to apply in writing to the Head Teacher.

Absenteeism Figures

Good attendance is vitally important to your child and their progress. If they are regularly late or missing days they will fall behind in their learning.

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.
