We believe that promoting regular attendance is part of creating an effective school, which is committed to raising the levels of achievement for all its pupils. School days are precious!
If your child is going to be absent from school please let us know by telephone or letter before 9.15am.
Please can you ensure you ring the school office before 3pm if someone else is collecting your child.
If children tell us they are unwell at school we will monitor them carefully but will generally only send them home if they are actually sick or have diarrhoea, a temperature or a rash. If your child is ‘under the weather’ when they get up but has no actual symptoms of illness, please bring them in to school. We can contact you immediately if symptoms do develop and quite often, once into an exciting day, aches and pains are forgotten.
If your child has been sick or had diarrhoea due to a virus, please keep them at home for 48 hours after the symptoms subside. Infections of this kind can spread very quickly where young children are concerned.
Each half term we run an attendance incentive. This is for every child that attends school every day, on time. The purpose of this is to promote attendance and punctuality at our school. A reward celebration assembly will be held at the beginning of each term

You will be given a form to fill in should your child need medicine during a school day.
Medicines will only be administered that have been prescribed by a doctor or some other authorised person and where it would be detrimental to a child’s health if the medicine were not administered during the day. Non-prescription medicines will not be administered by staff but parents/carers can make arrangements at lunch time to administer the medication to their child.
