Absence

Any absence should be explained by a telephone call to the school office on the first day of absence or a note to the class teacher.  If the absence continues over a weekend another phone call on Monday is required.  Unexplained absences will be checked.

 

Returning to School After Sickness/Injury

Parents of children who are returning to school after a serious injury or illness must report to the school office in order for a risk assessment to be completed especially if your child needs things put in place upon their return i.e. no PE lessons whilst on crutches, etc.

 

Lateness

It is appreciated that a child can occasionally be late for school and contact by a parent to explain this is perfectly acceptable.  However, regular or persistent lateness will be queried as late arrivals can disrupt the start of the school day for others and is a breach of school discipline.

Annual Holiday

Parents should arrange holidays outside term time.  The school and the local authority do not sanction any holiday in term time except in exceptional circumstances.  Requests for holiday absence must be accompanied by an explanatory letter and are subject to individual approval by the Headteacher.  Where prior approval is not agreed then holiday absence will be recorded as unauthorised.

Registers

School attendance registers are a legal document and must be completed for each session (i.e. ½ day) the school is open.  They are subject to regular audit by the Educational Welfare Department of the LEA whose officers may decide on home visits where clarification for lateness or absence is required.

 

Security

An entry system is in operation, along with other measures to safeguard children's safety.  All parents coming to the school during normal hours must do so via the entry system at the main entrance.No parents or unauthorised visitors are allowed to walk around the school whilst in session. 

 

All enquiries are dealt with through the school office.  When entry is required a badge signifying authorisation to be within school premises will be issued and you will be asked to sign in and out of the building.
