School begins at 8.20am, the gates open at 8.00am and the doors at 8:10am when the chidren make their own way to the classrooms.
- Children are expected to attend on every school day, unless they are unwell or need to attend a medical or other important appointment. Parents must inform the school in writing in advance where possible or, in the case of illness, please call the school and choose Option 2 to report this on the first day away. (This will need to be followed by an absence letter on their return which is available from the Reception Area.)
- In other cases, parents are asked to write to the Headteacher requesting permission for children to be absent from school. The Headteacher will authorise this absence if it meets agreed criteria. Absence taken without permission will be treated as unauthorised.
