Attendance and Absence 

Ensuring your child’s regular attendance at school is your legal responsibility and permitting absence from school without a good reason creates an offence in law and may result in prosecution.  Failing to attend this school on a regular basis will be considered as a safeguarding matter.

If your child is absent you must contact us as soon as possible on the first day of absence preferably by 9.30 by phoning (a message can be left), emailing or delivering a letter or message personally to reception. If we have not heard from you by 9.30am we will attempt to contact you to discuss the absence.

If you would like to find out more, please refer to our Attendance Policy which you can find in the 'Policies' section on the "School Information" tab.

Emergency School Closure Procedures

On extremely rare occasions, the school may not be opening due to emergency closures ... like snow!  We will put the information on our school website - on the top of our home page!  We will also send out text messages to the nominated number and email addresses to notify you of school closures. 

If we are open, but there is snow or ice around, pleas take care when driving around the local area and also when walking on footpaths.  We will do our best to make them as safe as possible but there can be no guarantees!

Bring in those wellies if there is snow, and a warm set of clothes, including gloves, and then we will go out on our field - which is fabulous for building snowmen.
