Late arriving or absent pupils

Please ensure that your child arrives at school on time. We understand that children may be late because of medical or other appointments on occasions. If your child does arrive late to school they must be brought to the main office to be registered.

If your child is going to be absent please contact us by 9:00am. You can telephone or pop into the office to let us know why your child is absent.

If your child has an upcoming medical or other appointment please bring the appointment letter to the school office before the day that your child will be absent from or late for school.

Children that are being collected from school during the school day are signed out by a member of staff and by yourselves.

Parents and Carers are strongly discouraged from taking holidays during term time. They can be disruptive to a child’s education. If a request for a term time absence is to be made please complete a Request for Absence form (available from the school office) at the earliest possible opportunity with details explaining the request. Requests are considered by the Headteacher.

Traffic and the school site

The roads around our school have a 20mph speed limit and traffic calming measures in place for the safety of our children and their families.

We encourage children and parents to walk to school. If you do live too far away to walk, why not find a place to park five minutes walk from the school gates and walk the last part of the journey? It is good for your child as it wakes them up; gives you a chance to have a chat with them and alleviates traffic problems around the school. It is even good for the planet!

Parking close to the school gates is very difficult and can be extremely dangerous. The beginning and end of the school day is very busy with children and families crossing busy roads. Please do not drive or park inconsiderately or dangerously.

To safeguard our children, we are a no phones site. We thank you for your support with this and not using your mobile phones when dropping and collecting your child on the school premises.
