Late/Absence Procedures

Unexplained Absences Procedure


All schools are required to monitor attendance, as unauthorised absences have to be declared and published. If your child is to be absent, please contact the school before 9.00 am. You can call and leave a message on the absence line or complete the absence form which is located on the contact page.

On return to school please send a note stating the reason for their non-attendance.

If we have not heard from you by 9.30am then we will start to call the contact numbers that you provided in order to gain an explanation for the absence.

This procedure is to ensure that we know where your child is and that you are all safe.


Late arrivals


Children who arrive late to school must be signed in at the office. Please remember to advise the office if they need to order a school lunch.


Collecting your child during school hours


If children need to leave the premises during the day they will need to be accompanied by an adult and "signed out" at the office.
