There is a clear and proven link between levels of attendance at school and academic achievement, and we strongly encourage all parents to ensure their children’s attendance is as high as possible.

If for any reason your child cannot attend school (for example, as a result of illness) please telephone us as soon as possible, before 9am if you are able to do so.

Please ensure your child is in school in good time to start the school day promptly at 9am. Our busy staff are only available to supervise children from 8:50am so please do not bring children to school before then if it can be avoided. We do understand that everyone has an occasional crisis and if you do need to bring your child to school before 8:50am please telephone and the staff will do their best to be helpful.

Please arrange for your child to be picked up promptly at the end of the school day, school finishes at 3:25pm. If you are unavoidably delayed, or have arranged for someone else to collect your child, please let your child’s class teacher know so that we are aware of the situation.
