Good attendance is important because:
We place great importance on attendance and monitor attendance daily. Attendance has a high profile within our school and we recognise and reward good and improved attendance.
The school day starts at 8.40am and the school gates are opened at 8:35. Families are then free to take their children to the classroom door where they will be welcomed by an adult from the class and the child will go straight into their class and begin an activity (often a reading activity) to begin their day.
The day finishes at 3:00pm for Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and 3:05pm for Key Stage 2. An adult from the class will then hand over your child back to you at the end of the day from the external door to their classroom.
If your child is in Year 5 or 6, could you please contact the school office if you would like to give them permission to walk home from school by themselves.
Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.
This means that we will not authorise leave of absence for family holidays during term time, unless we are satisfied that there are exceptional circumstances. Please ask at the school office for more information.
