Attendance / Absence

Introduction

Parents have a responsibility to ensure that their children receive full time education. Regular attendance is essential if children are to progress with their learning.

 

Absence

We would expect parents/carers to inform the school by 9.30am by phone, or in person, if your child is unwell and unable to attend school. If we have no reason for the absence by 9.30am the absence will be recorded as unauthorised. We would also expect to be notified if your child has a medical appointment.

 

Punctuality

Punctuality is an important social convention and late arrivals disrupt the routines of the school. We would therefore request that parents make every effort to ensure their children are in school for 8.50am.
