By law, all children of compulsory school age must receive a suitable full time education. Once your child is registered at school, you are legally responsible for making sure they go regularly. Attendance at school is vital in order that children have the maximum chance of taking full advantage of the opportunities available to them. Parents/carers are legally responsible for making sure that children attend school. If your child does not attend school you could get fined or prosecuted.
We place a great emphasis on attendance and punctuality and we have an attendance award that classes compete for weekly. Children are also rewarded for good attendance and punctuality individually during our Achievement Assemblies.
If your child is not going to be in school, for whatever reason, you are required to call the school office before registration commences. If you do not contact school then our Attendance Officer will contact you either via telephone or will make a home visit. Registration commences at 8.45am for Nursery, 8.50am for Reception and Key Stage 1 and 8.55am for Key Stage 2. If your child arrives at school after registration has commenced then they will receive a late mark. Any child arriving at school after 9.30am will be marked as an unauthorised absence.
