Late/Absence Procedures

Pupils must be ready to enter the classroom at 8.50am. 


Pupils arriving after this time must report to the school office and will be recorded as ‘unauthorised late’ on the register.   


If your child is absent from school, you must notify us immediately providing the reason for their absence.


If a child is persistently late or absent, parents/carers may be contacted by the Education Welfare Officer.


If your child needs to leave school during school hours to attend a medical appointment, parents/carers must inform school in advance and report to the school office on the day to collect your child.  Children are not permitted to leave the school site unless collected by a parent/carer. 


Requests for leave of absence for special circumstances must be requested at least three weeks prior to the intended absence.  Unless holiday requests are as a result of very specific special circumstances, holidays will not be authorised in term time.
