One of the most important things you can do for your child's future is to make sure they receive their education.

Attendance at school means that they will be able to achieve the best they can and have more opportunities open to them. We regularly celebrate our pupils’ good attendance by recognising their achievements and your hard work with:

Pupils’ attendance at school is recorded every day and monitored regularly. If your child is between 5 and 16 years of age and is registered at school, it is your legal responsibility to ensure that they attend regularly and are on time. If school feel that there is no satisfactory explanation for the absence it will be recorded as unauthorised. If we are concerned about any unauthorised absences we will want to talk to you about this, to see if we can help to support your child's attendance, this may include a home visit to see why the child is off school.

Continued absence will lead to a penalty notice being issued which is a £120 fine per adult in the household, per child or prosecution which could result in up to a £2500 fine, parenting order or imprisonment. Please be aware if prosecuted this will entail you receiving a criminal record, which could affect your future. 

School starts at 8.45am (EYFS) or 8.55am (KS1 & KS2)

Your child will receive a late mark if they arrive after the teacher has marked the register. However if your child arrives 15 minutes after the start of school they will receive a “U” unauthorised absence. This will affect your child’s attendance percentage.

If your child is late for school by just 10 minutes each day, over the period of the year they will have missed more than 6 school days!
