School doors open at 8.40 am and close at 8.50 am. If you arrive after 8.50 am please enter school via the main door and school office. Arrival after 9.00 am is classed as late. It is important for children to arrive at school punctually every day, unless they are unwell.  The school day ends at 3.20 pm for all pupils.

Attendance at school is a statutory requirement from the age of 5.

The school is required to track all pupils’ attendance which will be investigated if it falls below 90%. If you have any problems with your child attending school, it is important to discuss this with the Head Teacher at the earliest point.

Equally, if your arrangements for collecting your child alter, it is important that the class teacher is made aware, or you contact the office to ensure staff are made aware of any changes.


If your child is unwell or is absent for any other reason, you MUST telephone or email the school office before 9.30 am on the first day of absence. 

Alternatively you can inform the school using the free app  

If possible, please give an indication of when your child may return. There is no need to inform the office on each subsequent day of absence unless the situation changes.

It is our responsibility as a school to safeguard all our children, which includes knowing why they are not present in school.  If we do not have prior notification of absence we will contact you by phone to confirm the whereabouts of your child. 

If we are unable to contact you, we may assume your child is missing and relevant agencies or the Police may be contacted.  An authorised absence can only be granted if the school receives notification of a valid reason for your child’s absence.
