You can find our full policy on attendance here.

Regular attendance and being in school on time are essential for success. Research has shown the positive impact on outcomes, social skills, confidence and friendships.

Class Start Time End of the day
Nursery 8.30am or 12.30am 11.45am or 3.30pm
Reception and Years 1 and 2 8.40am 3.15pm
Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 8.50am 3.25pm

Children will be met on the gates daily by members of staff, and will transition to their classrooms to be greeted warmly by their teachers. Work in classes begins straight away, so it's important your child is on time to avoid missing out.

Family Guide to Attendance

Mild Illnesses

It is expected your child attends school if they are able to take part in school activities and do not have an infectious illness as defined by the NHS. Mild illnesses can be managed well by distraction in school, and we are happy to administer medicines (Calpol, Antibiotics etc) if you pass this via the office and complete the relevant form. If you are unsure, please speak to a member of staff.

Attendance support

We monitor attendance and punctuality, and will contact you if we have concerns.

This could be by phone or letter, or you could be invited to an attendance panel at the school if attendance falls below 90%. We will always take a trauma-informed approach and aim to offer support and understand barriers to attendance as our initial aim.
