Attendance and punctuality have a direct impact on children’s learning and on the smooth running of the school. Children are expected to be in the playground by 8:45am ready for the school to be opened at 8.50am.
We do expect parents to co-operate fully in encouraging regular attendance.
We work closely with the Educational Welfare Officer, who monitors punctuality and attendance. If attendance drops below 95% the parents will be invited in to see the Educational Welfare Officer and the Headteacher. The Educational Welfare Officer has the power to prosecute in extreme cases.
At the end of the day, children should be collected at 3:15pm. If a child is left at school for an unacceptable amount of time at the end of the school day, it may result in a late collection charge and referral to Social Services.
