Attendance

PUNCTUALITY AND ATTENDANCE

Please phone school EVERY morning that your child does not attend, before 9:30am so that their attendance records are kept up to date.  If a child is absent for two consecutive days, the school will contact parents/carers to be clear about the reason for their absence.

We do not consider a cold, cough, headache or tummy ache to be an illness that prevents your child from attending school.  If they are complaining of this kind of thing, please bring them to school and if they deteriorate then we will call you to collect them.  We often find that once children are amongst their friends and engaged in learning they feel better.

Please only keep your child at home if it is absolutely necessary.

Punctuality is a life skill which all children will benefit from in the future.

The late procedures are in place so that every child is entered onto the register and can be accounted for in the event of an emergency.
