Late/Absence Procedures



If your child is late for school i.e. after the school gates have closed, then parents should accompany them into the school reception area and sign them in using the school electronic sign in system.  Your child will then be accompanied to class by a member of staff.

There will be an L (late before registers close) put into the registers if your child is late after the gates close but before 9:15 am. A U (late after registers close) will be put into the register if your child arrives after this time. 


If Your Child Becomes Unwell in School


If a child appears ill or informs an adult that s/he is feeling unwell, then one of our qualified first aiders will comfort the child. In the event of a child being sick, the first aider will contact the child’s parent/carer immediately. Similarly, if a child has an accident at school, parents will be informed, either immediately, by telephone or by a letter at the end of the day, depending on the severity of the accident. Parents are always informed if a child bumps his/her head. Minor cuts and grazes are treated by first aiders and all accidents, no matter how minor, are recorded in our Accident Book.




If your child is ill, please notify the school office as soon as possible. Upon your child’s return to school, please provide written confirmation of your child’s illness. You can leave a message on our answer phone 01332 550178 with your child's full name, class and reason for absence.
