From the term after your child’s fifth birthday full-time attendance at school is compulsory by law. Parents are requested to inform the school on the 1st day of any absence. If your child is absent because of illness, dental or other medical treatment, a note giving the reason of absence must be sent into school. Children must not be absent from school for social events or shopping.
Frequent lateness or absence from school without good reason, will result in a referral to the County Education Welfare Officers and will be recorded in the School and National Records as an unauthorised absence. Fixed penalty notices may be served by the Education Welfare Officer.
The school day for all pupils starts at 8:45am and finishes at 3:30pm. The school gates and classroom doors will be open from 8:30am to ensure a prompt start at 8:45am.
