Absence from school
The school day is 8:45am - 3:15pm. It is important that you contact us before 9:30am if your child is going to be absent from school. Absences must be reported on the first day.

Each and every day at school matters. Our curriculum is designed so that, in each lesson, the children are building on what has come before. When gaps develop, they can be difficult to address. Of course, none of us can help being ill, but we encourage you to think carefully before deciding not to send your child to school.
The Department of Education has amended the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006. The amendments make clear that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time. Failure to do so will result in the absence being unauthorised.
