Term dates and school times

As a school we have a responsibility to promote and encourage good attendance and challenge where levels drop below expected standards. Expected standard in a primary school is 96%.

Regular attendance at school is extremely important if children are to make progress and parents/carers are responsible for getting their children to school every day.

The school gates open at 8:40am and children go straight to their classroom, where staff greet them. Registration is at 8:45am. If children arrive after 8:50am, they should report to the school office.

If your child is ill and not well enough to come to school, please inform us by telephone before the start of the school day using the absence line 01865 340420, choosing option 1, or email
