Attendance and the School Day

The school gates are open from 8:45 am for children to come straight into classes.


From September 2022 the compulsory day starts with registration taken at 8:55 am to comply with government requirements to provide a school week of 32.5 hours. Register closes at 9:01 and children arriving after that will be late. The day ends at 3:25 for Infants and 3:30 for Juniors.


If your child is absent for any reason please contact the school office as soon as possible and no later than 9:15 on that day 01772 864550 - if this is before school starts leave a message, we will pick up the recording. If the absence is unexplained in any class we will make contact with you.
