Late/Absence Procedures

If your child arrives after the gates have been locked (approximately 8:55am), they should enter through the main entrance and be signed in in the Late Book.

At the end of the day children should be collected promptly at 3:25pm.  We teach our children that if their collection arrangements break down for any reason, they are to come back into school and report to a member of staff.  If your child has not been collected within a reasonable time and we have had no communication from you we will log your child's non collection in our Late Collection Book.

We have a 24 hour answerphone for you to leave a message informing us of the reason for your child's absence.  Please inform us daily for each absence by phone (01727) 856262 or e-mail on

It is not expected that parents apply for leave of absence during term time for holidays.  However, should there be exceptional and unavoidable circumstances, where leave of absence is required during term time, please request the leave of absence form from the school office.
