Attendance

 

School Times

The School day starts at 8.40am and ends at 3.15pm.

School pedestrian gates are opened from 7.30-8.50am to allow parents to drop off and from 3pm – 3.45pm to allow parents to collect their child/ren.

There is no access to drive into the school staff car park for drop off or pick up, unless by prior arrangement with the Site Manager. Those requesting access must have a current blue badge.

Pick Up

In order to help the teachers and teaching assistants with seeing the children out of school safely, we ask parents to complete a ‘Child Pick Up Form’ on ParentMail, indicating who will regularly be collecting their child/ren. This means that as long as the person collecting the child/ren are on the list, parents do not have to call the school to advise who is collecting their child/ren.

If the form is not completed, only parents will be allowed to collect their own child/ren.

If there are any changes to collection arrangements, it is the parents' responsibility to inform the school.

A new pick-up form will then be sent to primary contacts on ParentMail to be completed.

Leaving School Early

Should you need to remove your child from school early for a medical appointment, please ensure you bring the appointment letter/card to the school office.

Illness

Should your child be ill in school and need to go home, the school office will call parents initially and if no response, will work their way down the list of contacts held in school.

IT IS THE PARENTS’ RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP THE SCHOOL ADVISED OF ANY CHANGE IN CONTACT DETAILS/PHONE NUMBERS.
