The School Day

Registers of attendance are completed at the beginning of the morning and afternoon sessions of school.

Morning school starts at 8:50am and afternoon school starts 1:20pm. If a child is not on school premises at this time they are marked absent.  Late arrivals must report to the School Reception and the registers will be amended to show a 'late mark'.  If this happens regularly the Education Welfare Officer (EWO) will be informed and will contact/visit parents.

School finishes at 3:30pm except:

  • Last day of each term when school finishes at 2:30pm
  • Friday of Art Week (December TBC) when school finishes at 2:00pm

The School Office must be informed about absence due to illness/dental appointments/family problems etc. Either a phone call (which will be documented and given to the class teacher) an email to or a note of explanation (which will also be kept to ensure there are no unexplained or 'unauthorised' absences) is required.
