Attendance and Punctuality


Dear Parents/Carers,


We are seeing an increase in children coming into school late in the mornings. The gates open at 8.35am and by 8.50am the children should be in class and registered. During this time, each class has a dedicated well-being time, for children to read, colour and chat to their friends and teachers etc. This is to help the children settle and be ready for the start of the day's learning. We are finding this works very well for those children who are here in plenty of time. Rushing in late, missing this time, and possibly missing instructions from the teacher about the first lesson, is not a good start to the day. We understand there are sometimes circumstances beyond our control that affect punctuality, such as road closures or bus strikes, but we do ask that you endeavour to arrive by 8.50am to make sure all the children have a great start to their day.

Please could we also remind you that the school must be informed on each day of any absences via one of the following methods:

  • StudyBugs app

  • Email to

  • Telephone the school office and leave a message or voicemail


Any absences that we are not made aware of will be marked as "Unauthorised".


If you are experiencing any difficulties regarding punctuality and attendance, and would like support, please contact Mrs Darby.


Thank you for your support.
