"What should I do if my child arrives late?"

If you arrive late for school you will need to report to the school office to gain access to the school. Pupils and parents/carers are encouraged to make every effort to arrive at school on time and ensure pupils are collected on time as lateness can be very disruptive to the class or child.

"What should I do if my child is ill?"

If your child is ill and unable to attend school please inform the school office by phone on the first day of absence. If your child is absent for any length of time then we request that you update the school every three days. A letter should be sent in with the child when they return to school to explain their absence. Please note: children who have diarrhoea or sickness should be kept at home for 24hours after the symptoms have ceased before returning to school. If your child is absent for 5 days or more please provide evidence i.e. Doctor's note or sight of medicine/prescription.

"What should I do when my child is absent?"

It is in your child's best interest to attend school for the maximum number of days possible, however, we do recognise that on rare or special occasions you may need to apply to the Headteacher for a leave of absence from the school. Please see the Forms page for more information.

For other reasons for absence e.g. dentist, hospital appointments etc. please inform the school in advance.

Lost property is kept in the school office. At the end of term, unclaimed items are taken to a recycling centre.
