All children can arrive at school from 8.40am until 9am. The official register is taken at 9am and all children must be in their classroom to get a mark in the register. Children who arrive after this time will be marked as late. If your child arrives after 9:30am it will be recorded as unauthorised whole absence for the morning session.
Talk regularly with you child about school and how they feel about it. Children are more likely to attend school if they feel supported by you and their worries are listened to and talked about.
Praise them when they come into school, ask them what they have done today, show them you are interested - all praise is GOOD!
Only allow your child days off school for genuine illness. Days off for anything other than genuine illness will not be authorised unless there are exceptional circumstances.
You MUST phone school as soon as possible to tell us why your child is absent before 9am and when they are expected to return. Save the school number in your phone – this will save you time, 01782 973970.
