Late/Absence Procedures

Late/Absence Procedures

The school gates open at 8:35am, where children make their way on to the playground and then to their classrooms, which is supervised by school staff. Children should all be on site by 8:50am.

Children arriving at school after the 8:50am will need to enter school via the school office. 


School finishes at 3:25pm for  all children.


If your child will be absent from school, please email their class teacher or 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.

Excellence Enjoyment, Everyone Everything. At Red Hill C of E Primary School, we look to Jesus as our example in our aspirations for Excellence and Enjoyment in all that we do. We believe that Everyone is unique and Everything is celebrated. "God created you to be amazing" (Ephesians 2:10)
