To ensure children make good progress in school, good attendance is essential. We have various rewards and initiatives in school to promote good attendance and punctuality. 10 minutes lost at the start soon adds up and means that children are missing that initial learning input. Our Parent Support Advisor, Mrs Alderson, is always on hand to support with attendance. Further information about our Attendance Policy is available here.

If your child is ill and cannot attend school, please telephone the school office on 01748 822104 and leave a message no later than 9.30am. Alternatively you can email the school office. Again please do so by 9:30. If we have not heard from you by 9:30am we will contact you. To ensure the safety of our children it is important that we know where they area, so please support us with this. Please ensure that you contact us every day your child is absent.

If your child has suffered from diarrhoea or vomiting, please ensure they are kept off school for 48 hours after the last bout of illness. For other illnesses you can check with the school office as to how long they need to be kept of school. It is very important that these recommendations are followed to ensure the safety and wellbeing of other children in school.
