The school day starts promptly at 8.45 a.m. If a child arrives at school after 8.45 a.m. without prior arrangements having been agreed, he/she will be deemed late.  Registers close at 9.00 a.m. and arrival at school after this time, without prior approval or extenuating circumstances, will be recorded as an unauthorised absence.

Leave of absence during term time.

We understand that there may be a temptation to take children on a holiday during term time. However, whilst we recognise there will be a need and benefit to this, we must also stress the importance of children attending school regularly.

Government policy is clear; attendance at school is a national priority and ensuring regular attendance is a legal responsibility of parents/carers. Therefore, we thought it was important to remind you of the legislation and potential consequences of any unauthorised absence during term time. This means that absence during term time is only permitted in ‘exceptional circumstances’. This does not typically include holidays.

If you are still unsure refer to the Governments advise page:
