Late/Absence Procedures

Late arrivals

Arrival after 8.55am is recorded as unauthorised absence on school records.  Staff monitor closely pupils who arrive late for school and will work with parents and carers to improve punctuality.


What to do when your child is absent from school

  • Telephone the school office on 01929 552517 on the first day of absence to explain the reason why your child is away from school
  • If your child is absent for more than one day, please keep the school informed during your child's absence
  • When your child returns to school, please send in a letter to explain their absence which will be kept in their file
  • If your child has a medical or dental appointment please try to make them out of school hours if possible.  If the appointment is during school hours, please bring in their appointment card or letter so we can place a copy in their file.
