The School Day
Registers of attendance are completed at the beginning of the morning and afternoon sessions of school.
In the morning school starts at 8:40am and afternoon school starts 1:25pm. 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 1.00pm
- Friday of Arts Week (First week of December) 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or a note of explanation (which will also be kept to ensure there are no unexplained or 'unauthorised' absences) is required.
