The school day begins promptly at 9.00am and we ask that children arrive promptly to ensure a positive start to the day. Doors are open from 8.50am and children may enter from that time. They will be supervised in the classroom until the school day begins. The children’s entrance will close at 9.00am promptly. Any children arriving after this time will have to enter by the main entrance and sign in the late book. Late attendance is recorded, monitored and will be reported on the annual school report to parents.
If your child is absent from school due to illness, you should notify school by telephone as soon as possible giving details of the illness and the possible duration of absence. Please see Medical Policy for full details, list of exclusion periods and administration of medicines.
If children are to be absent from school for reasons other than illness please notify school beforehand. Children with medical or dental appointments are entitled to an authorised absence in the register if the school or teacher is notified in advance. Children will not be permitted to leave the premises without a parent or agreed adult to collect them.
