Due to the coronavirus pandemic, from September 2020, we are operating staggered start and finish times for each Year Group. Please ensure that your child arrives at school using the allocated gate and at the correct time.
Class registers will be taken punctually each day between the hours of 08:50 and 09:00, and between 13:00 and 13:10.
If your child is absent from school for any reason, you must ring the school and leave a message (01642 453187). Visitors to school are currently restricted due to coronavirus. Please do not call into the office unless you have no other way of speaking to us. If you do not contact us, you will receive a phone call from Mrs Hutchinson (Attendance Office) checking that your child is safe and asking why they are not at school.
As a school, we expect attendance to be 96% or above. If your child’s attendance falls below 96%, they will be placed onto the attendance concern register. Once their attendance is 96% or above, they will be taken off the register.
When children have lengthy absences, or frequently miss one or two days from school, we have to formally involve the Academy Trust’s Attendance Welfare Officer (AWO) to ascertain whether the absence is justified. This may necessitate a home visit. Parents have a legal responsibility to ensure that their children attend the school regularly and that they arrive on time.
Please ensure that your child arrives to school on time.
Due to guidance from the Department for Education, we are unable to authorise any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.
If you need to take your child out of school during term time, we ask that you contact the school for an absence request letter.
