Late/Absence Procedures

We expect children to be on time and in school daily.  This supports children in maximising every opportunity to make good progress and reach their potential. 

Further details about good attendance can be found in our Attendance Policy which can be found on our Attendance page.

 If your child is going to be late or absent from school you must:


  1. Parents/carers must notify the school if their child is going to be absent/late before 9am, including the child's name, class and reason for absence (e.g. cold, cough, vomiting, diarrhoea, headache, sore throat, tummy ache, viral infection etc.). If the reason for absence is not stated, we will call for clarification.
  2. This message can be telephoned to the school office (an answerphone message can be left at any time).
  3. The parent/carer can come in person, or a message can be emailed to the school.
