Late/Absence Procedures

Late/Absence Procedures

The morning bell sounds at 8:40am, where children make their way on to the playground, which is supervised by school staff.

The 8:50am bell sounds and children make their way into the classrooms. Children should all be on site by 8:50am.

Children arriving at school after the 8:50am bell will need to sign in the Late Book at the school office. 


School finishes at 3:15pm for Reception classes, and 3:25pm for Years 1-6.


If your child will be absent from school, please call the school office on (01905) 352524 to register their absence. If a child is not in school, and we have not been contacted, we will send a text message to enquire about their whereabouts.


Please remember that you must notify us on each day your child is absent. For sickness & diarrhoea, children can not return until they have been clear for a minimum of 48 hours.


Holidays during term time.

Headteachers are no longer permitted to authorise term time absence for holidays. For parents who choose to take holidays during term time, the child's absence will be recorded as "unauthorised", and parents may be liable to a fixed penalty notice.
