School opens at 8:30am with registers opening at 8:40am.  We end our school day at 3:10pm.  Total weekly hours are 32.5.




 Your child's daily attendance at school is very important.

 Did you know...

  • a child who is absent a day of school per week misses an equivalent of two years of their school life
  • 90% of young people with absence rates below 85% fail to achieve five or more good grades of GCSE and around one third achieve no GCSEs at all.
  • poor school attendance is also closely associated with crime a quarter of school age offenders have truanted repeatedly

 Poor attendance can also:

  • mean that children fall behind in work
  • affect their motivation
  • affect their enjoyment of learning                                           
  • lead to poor behaviour
  • affect their desire to attend school regularly
  • affect their confidence in school
  • mean they miss out on the social life of school and extra curricular opportunities and experiences
  • affect their ability to have or keep friendships.





It is your responsibility to make sure that the school is given an up-to-date emergency telephone number in case your child is taken ill at school. This is particularly important with mobile phones, which are changed frequently. School need to have name, address and phone numbers of all parents/guardians with parental responsibility for the child even if you do not live together.



Attendance Policy

Moments Matter, Attendance Counts.

Moments Matter, Attendance Counts.



The government has launched a new national campaign to remind parents and carers of the importance of school attendance. You will be seeing it on tv, social media and hearing about it on the radio.

 We regularly remind you of the importance of good punctuality and attendance and the negative impact poor attendance has on your child’s educational attainment and social and emotional development. In 2018/19, just 40% of persistently absent (PA) children in KS2 achieved expected KS2 standards, compared with 84% of pupils who were regular attenders.

The NHS and the Chief Medical Officer say it is usually appropriate for parents and carers to send their children to school with mild respiratory illnesses, including general cold symptoms like a minor cough, runny nose or sore throat.

From the first day of term to the last, the small moments in a school day make a real difference to your child. #AttendanceCounts so please ensure your child attends school regularly. Parents can also support their children’s education and the school by taking holidays and visiting family abroad during the holidays.  There are 175 days a year that pupils do not have to attend school and these should be used for these purposes.

Thank you for your continued support.
