Arriving at school
Children in year 1 to 6 can arrive any time from 8.20 to 8.30am. The playground is supervised from 8.20am and children line up at 8.30am ready to go to their classes. Children should not arrive before
8.20, as they will not be supervised.
Reception doors open at 8.30am, you can bring children in for first few weeks while they are part time. Once they start full time to leave them at the door.
My child is absent
Please telephone the school office by 9am on the first day of absence. Absences will then be recorded and you will not need to send in a note. Any absence that is not confirmed to the school will be shown as unauthorised. Alternatively you can email the school on firstname.lastname@example.org
My child is late
Please enter school via the front door and sign in at the office.
My Child has been unwell
Please refer to this advice on when it's safe for your child to return to school after illness from the Health Protection Agency. Read here →
In particular, if your child has had any kind of diarrhoea or vomiting illness they should not return to school for 48 hours
from the last episode, as these illnesses can be very contagious.
My child has a medical appointment during the school day
Where it is not possible to make this outside of school hours, please send a note in to the class teacher in advance. On the day, please sign your child out, using the book in the entrance porch, so that we have accurate records of children on the premises. If you return to school, please sign them back in.
