Good attendance at school is important for your child’s education and establishes a positive working ethos early in life.
We expect 100% attendance and 100% punctuality.
When your child is unwell please call the school on the first morning of absence by 9.30am. We will require a letter, explaining the reason why the child is not at school, on the child’s return. If your child has been sick, had a tummy bug or has had a temperature, it is important they stay at home for 48 hours.
If anyone in the school becomes unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature, or has a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia), they are sent home and advised to follow ‘stay at home: guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection’, which sets out that they must self-isolate for at least 10 days and should arrange to have a test to see if they have coronavirus (COVID-19). Other members of their household (including any siblings) should self-isolate for 10 days from when the symptomatic person first had symptoms.
For out of school dental and medical treatment
Please let the school office know in writing, in advance of the date and time of the appointment and when your child will be collected from and/or returned to school. You can find the relevant form at the virtual office on this website.
For family holidays during term time
All absence should be requested in writing to the Head of School.
