Late/Absence Procedures

Our school has an Attendance Policy to support the management of school absence and late arrivals. Please visit our Policy page in the 'key information' section of our website for more information.


Children should be in their classroom ready for registration at 8.50am. The gates open at 8.40am. Children remain the responsibility of their parent/carer until 08:50.


Late arrival or early departure Guidance

If your child is late, please go to the school office to sign them in. If your child is absent for any reason, please ring the school as soon as possible with the reason for the absence. Unless you tell us that your child will be absent for a specific number of days, we will expect you to ring every morning that your child is away. If you do not ring in, you will receive a text message prompting you to contact the school as soon as possible. If your child has a medical appointment, please inform the office so that a record can be made. However every attempt should be made for routine medical appointments to be made outside the school day. It is vitally important that we know where all our children are at any time. If you are bringing your child into school later in the day, or collecting them during the day, please come to the school office and sign them either in or out respectively. We have had an exceptional attendance record as a school and we wish to maintain that status with your support.
