The School Day


School Attendance

Regular and punctual attendance ensures your children have full access to the entire curriculum without missing out on key learning opportunities available to them. Please ensure your child attends school and arrives on time. 


School starts at 08:45 and registers are closed by class teachers at 08:50. Any children that arrive at school after 08:50 will be marked as late in the attendance record. Any child that arrives at school later than 09:10 will be marked as having an unauthorised absence.


When reporting your child’s absence from school, please use the absence email address or telephone number below:

Absence Email:

Attendance Office: 01474 533082 Ext 3008

The attendance office must be informed of all absences before 08:40. This will ensure your child’s absence is recorded before the school day begins and avoid any unnecessary contact from the attendance office.


If a child is unwell and cannot come to school, their parent/carer should inform the attendance team as detailed above before 08:40. If we do not receive any contact from a parent/carer as to why a child is not in school then we will call home to check the reason for their absence.
