Parents are required by law to ensure that their children who are over five years of age attend school.
It is important that school is informed if your child is going to be absent, even for part of the day. You must contact the school office to inform us of the absence on each morning that your child is away from school, this should be done before 9 am the school has an answering machine to record messages. School records are computerised and every absence must be accounted for and authorised by the Headteacher.
A form for absence other than illness is available from the school office or can be downloaded from our website.
Your child’s annual attendance record will be shown in the end of year report.
If your child is going to arrive late or needs to leave early for any reason please let us know so that records can be amended. In both cases, children will need to report in and out at the school office and an adult will need to sign the child in/out using the electronic Inventry system.
Children leaving school early should always be signed out by a parent or responsible adult.
