Good attendance is essential for progress in schoolwork. 

The link between good attendance and achievement is obvious and for this reason, holidays during term time are not normally authorised. 

We would appreciate being advised, in advance if possible, of any absences, lateness or appointments by either note/absence request form, telephone (01884 840458) or email ( The school always follows up unexplained absences. If a child is absent from school for an event that has not been authorised, details are passed to the Educational Welfare Service who may impose a fixed penalty. 

Work is not normally sent home for absences of less than a week. 

During School Hours Drop-Off and Collection Arrangements: 

If you need to drop your child/ren to school during school hours, please ensure they enter through the main entrance and sign in with Mrs Alford. 

If you need to collect your child/ren during school hours, please ensure you always come into Reception to advise that you are here; Reception will then contact Mrs Alford who will endeavour to ensure they have signed out accordingly.
