Parents can exit the KS1 playground via the gate on the left hand side directly onto The Blundells. This will be signposted at the beginning of term.

All entrances and exits will be clearly signposted and we will have lots of staff around to guide you for the first few days. Please do not be offended if you are asked to go a different way, we will all get used to this new system..

 

ABSENCE

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  

It is vital you inform school if your child, or any family members are self isolating or have symptoms linked with COVID 19. Government guidance must be followed in these instances.

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.
