The School Day

School begins at 8.50am, the whistle will be blown by a member of the central leadership team and children should go straight into school to prepare for their day.

Bicycles and scooters can be stored in our bike and scooter shelters located at the front of school. We encourage the riding of either bikes or scooters to school by the children. However, neither should be ridden on school premises.

Reporting absences

We operate a ‘First Day Contact for Absence’, which means that we ask parents to contact us by phone or email before 9.30am on the first day of absence if this is due to illness or an unexpected circumstance.

A leave of absence form is required for any planned leave.  We follow the County Council’s attendance policy which can be found under our attendance section.
