AT SCHOOL—ON TIME—EVERY DAY
Regular and punctual attendance is vitally important for raising achievement and developing the potential of our pupils. Home and school must work together to ensure the children feel safe and secure about coming to school.
How you can help us:
Try to make medical appointments after school or in the holidays whenever possible
Support the school’s Attendance Policy and guidance
Make sure your child has what they need for school each day
Telephone school as soon as possible to let us know that your child is ill
Bring them and collect them on time each day
