Late/Absence Procedures

Children can enter school from 8:40am.  Registration begins at 8:50am.


We expect children to be present, on time every day.  The gates on the playground will be closed just after 8:50am, so if your child is late they will need to come into school via the main doors on Rood End Road.

Children who are late are given a late slip to present to their class teacher.


Mrs Dodd, our Education Welfare Officer monitors the children's attendance and identifies those who are late to school.  Persistent lateness or absenteeism is routinely challenged as we believe that attendance and punctuality at school are vital to ensuring good progress in learning.


If your child is ill, please notify school as soon as possible by calling the office on 0121 552 1866.
