Attendance and Punctuality

Attending school is so important. If your child misses one day a week that is the equivalent to two years from their school life. Therefore, an analogy of starting school at 7 years or leaving at 14 years old. Better attendance increases your chances of a better standard of living and achieving better exam results - fact!



Being late for school can mean missing vital work and seriously disrupts lessons for everyone.


Remember the law treats lateness and non-attendance in exactly the same way!


You can come to school between 8:40am - 3:20pm (Reception to Year 6, Nursery - 8:30am - 3:15pm)


School gate is opened at 8:40am by a member of the team

Help your child to make the most of their education – get to school on time!
