Child Absence

The Department of Education requires us to monitor all absences.  Pupils are expected to be in on time for registration at 8:45 from Reception to year 4 and 8:30 in Year 5 and 6.

Please notify the School if your child is going to be late or is unable to attend before the school day starts.

Infants (01793) 870471

Juniors (01793) 872100

On their return to School please provide a note explaining exactly why your child was away.  Without an explanation your child will be marked as an unauthorised absence.


Our pupils’ welfare is of paramount importance to us and we believe that regular attendance throughout the year is essential for their success and fulfilment.

We want to make sure that we can support education in the best way possible, including looking into how we can help to address gaps in learning due to absence.

At a time when learning has been disrupted due to covid it is vital that children’s attendance remains consistent to enable them to catch up on any lost learning and coverage.

Face-to-face education is important in helping pupils to fulfil their potential. During school time we believe pupils should be in class with their teachers and peers and enjoying all the benefits that brings.
