Regular attendance is essential to the all round development of the child and they should be allowed to take full advantage of educational opportunities available to them.
Each child has their attendance and punctuality monitored.
Pupils should be in the school playground before 8.55am ready to join their line
and should be collected promptly at
3.15pm. The playground is supervised from 8.40am.
All pupil absences are recorded; parents should contact the school on the first day of absence and provide an explanatory letter on the child’s return to school.
