We would appreciate it if you can telephone the school office by 9.00am, if your child is going to be absent, due to illness. Upon return to school you must inform the school in writing of the reason for your child’s absence. If this is not done, the absence will be recorded as unauthorised.

The school day begins at 8.55 am. Children may arrive any time between 8.45am  and 8.55 am. Please make sure your child arrives no later than 8.55am. Latecomers delay the whole class, causing an unsettled start to the day.

The Educational Welfare Officer regularly checks punctuality and attendance of pupils.
