Our aim is to make our school welcoming and open but at the same time a safe and secure place for everyone. Children should arrive at school no earlier than 8.45 a.m. when they can come straight into the classroom. If a parent wishes to speak with their child's class teacher first thing in the morning please make your request through the school office.

It is parents' responsibility to ensure that their children arrive at school on time. Frequent lateness can be upsetting for the child and disrupts the teaching for other children. If children do arrive after registration they will need to visit the office to be signed in. Similarly, if children need to leave the premises before the end of sessions they must be signed out in the office before leaving. Lateness and absence rates are subject to regular monitoring and excessive incidents will be discussed with parents before being referred to the Education Entitlement Service if the situation continues. We ask all visitors to report to the school office and to wear a visitor's badge during their stay. We believe that these measures will help to keep the children and staff as safe as is possible. If your child is unwell, they should stay at home. It is imperative that you contact the school on the first morning of your child's absence (by telephone or in person). This will ensure that we are alerted instantly if your child fails to arrive at school when expected. Absences will be recorded as unauthorised unless you have provided an explanation.
