Please make sure that your child gets to school on time. Lateness and rushing often upsets children and may give them the impression that punctuality does not matter.
Please let us know straightaway about absences from school. Attendance registers are legal documents and teachers have to fill in instances of lateness and reasons for all absences. If your child is absent from school it is therefore important that you ring the school or write a letter to inform us of the reason.
We strongly discourage parents taking children out of school during term time for holidays. The pace of the national curriculum is rigorous and it is often difficult for children to catch up with work that they have missed. However, permission may be granted for annual holidays of up to 5 school days in a school year; please ask for a form at the office. Do try to avoid taking children from school during May as this is an important time for assessments.
