Attendance and punctuality have a direct impact on a pupil's learning and on the smooth running of the school. Pupils are expected to be in the playground by 8:45am ready for the school start time of 8.50am. Any pupil arriving after this time must be signed in via the school office.
We do expect parents to co-operate fully in encouraging regular attendance.
We work closely with the Educational Welfare Officer, who monitors punctuality and attendance. If attendance drops below 95%, parents are invited in to see the Educational Welfare Officer and the Headteacher. The Educational Welfare Officer may prosecute in extreme cases.
At the end of the day, pupils should be collected at 3:15pm. Late collections are referred to our after school club, for a charge. Any child not collected by 4.45pm, without notice, will be referred to the police/social services.
Please see our Attendance policy for more information.
