The School monitors punctuality and absences closely. KS2 children may be left at 8.45am in the main playground with a member of staff.
The School expects every child to be in class at 9.00am.
For an absence to be authorised, the School needs a letter, phone call or email from the parent/carer giving an acceptable explanation. Emails should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Unauthorised absences are usually when the School receives no reasonable explanation for non-attendance and include all holidays taken in term time. When a child is away you need to let the School Office know the reason as soon as possible, and not wait until the child is sent back with a note.
The Education Social Worker may follow up any unexplained and frequent absences due to illness.
