Report an Absence
Under normal circumstances, school starts at 9am and children must arrive no later than 9.15am. After this time your child will receive a late mark in the register.
However, due to the school risk assessment as a result of Covid 19, school opening times are currently slightly different.
|8.50 - 8.58 - Parent drop off||2.50 - 2.58 - Parent pick up|
|9.00 - 9.10 - Taxi/Bus drop off||3.00 - 3.10 - Taxi/Bus pick up|
|9.10 - 9.20 - Parent drop off||3.10 - 3.20 - Parent pick up|
At the current time, any child arriving after 9. 20 will receive a late mark.
Being late means that your child will miss the start of the school day. This can be very upsetting for children as it is the start of their school daily routine.
If your child is going to be absent you must ring the school office by 8am giving your child’s name and the reason for their absence or send a message to the school office on ClassDoJo.

If your child or anyone in the family has symptoms of coronavirus, ie. new persistent cough or high temperature or change in or loss of taste or smell sensation, OR if you or anyone in your family has tested positive for coronavirus, YOU MUST keep your child at home and inform school.
If you do not get in touch with school and let us know why your child is not at school, we will try to contact you. We will ring all numbers held for you and we may also send you a message reminding you to contact us.
If we have not heard from you by lunch time we may decide to visit you at home to ensure you and your child are okay. We may also have to contact the local authority education social worker as we have a duty to safeguard your child.
