Bringing Your Child To School
Regular attendance in school is essential. We work closely with our Education Welfare Office to ensure children are in school on a regular basis. If for any reason your child is unable to attend school, please telephone the school office before 9.00am.
The Governors advise that parents do not book holidays during school time. Requests to authorise holiday absences must be sent to the school office before the holiday is taken. A holiday form is available from the school office.
The doors will be locked at 9.00am for safety reasons, if your child arrives later than this, please ensure they use the main entrance and sign in with a member of staff.
Children Leaving Early
There are occasions where you may need to take your child from school during the day. In these instances, parents/carers should report to the school office, where we will arrange for your child to be brought to the main entrance area.
Children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 must be collected at the end of the day. Please inform school if you have asked someone else to collect your child. At the start of every year, parents and carers are asked to complete a form stating who is able to collect their child. If another adult requests to take the child from school we will contact parents before releasing the child.
Children who are ill
When a child becomes unwell at school, every effort will be made to contact their parent/carer or the named emergency contact person. It is very important that emergency contact numbers are all kept up to date. If your number should change, please let the school office know immediately.
In accordance with the Health and Safety Policy, there are several trained First Aiders on the school staff who are available to deal with minor accidents.
