Please ensure that your child is at school on time every day. Children, like us, prefer to be on time, as you can imagine walking into a room full of people late is not a good start to the day.
School doors are open at 8.40am. If you are late for school and have to enter through the front office your child will get a late mark against them.

If your son/daughter is not well enough for school then contact the school and we will support you in anyway we can. If they are in hospital we can liaise with their education team.
If your son/daughter is persistently absent then we will meet with you to discuss any barriers which are stopping good attendance.
Only keep your child absent from school if it is a genuine illness, your child will fall behind if they do not attend and forming good habits in life will help them build resilience.
