If your child arrives after registration has been completed at 9.05 they will be marked in the register as L - late and the reason given by the parent will be entered on to the register. If you know that you are going to be significantly late - please could you telephone the school office to inform school that your child is going to be late and give a reason.
If your child is going to be absent from school due to illness or for any other reason, you should contact the school office on the first day of absence as near to 8:55 as possible, so that school is aware of why a pupil is missing from school. If school do not hear from a family, but a pupil is missing from school, school will always make contact with the family to find out the reason for absence. In order to prevent sickness bugs spreading our policy is that pupils should remain at home for 48 hours after the last occurrence of sickness or diarrhoea. We would like parents to keep us informed, where pupils are absent from school for more than 2 days.
We strongly advise that families do not take holiday during term time, due to the detrimental effect this has on a pupils education. If however you have made the decision to take your child our of school during term time, we would ask you to fill in a holiday form, which you can download or which is available from the school office. The Headteacher will then respond to the holiday request letting families know whether the absence will be authorised or unauthorised.
