  1. Key Information
  2. Attendance


We want all of our children to receive a full-time education which maximises opportunities for each pupil to realise their true potential. The school will strive to provide a welcoming, caring environment, where each member of the school community feels wanted and secure. All school staff will work with pupils and their families to ensure each pupil attends school regularly and punctually.

We have an effective system of incentives and rewards that acknowledge the efforts of pupils to improve their attendance and timekeeping and will challenge the behaviour of those pupils and parents who give low priority to attendance and punctuality.

Education Welfare Officer (EWO): An Education Welfare Officer is a dedicated professional who plays a crucial role in promoting regular school attendance. EWOs visit schools to meticulously monitor attendance patterns. Their focus extends beyond mere numbers; they keenly observe signs that may indicate underlying challenges. By collaborating closely with school staff, parents, and students, EWOs provide invaluable support to enhance attendance. It’s important to recognize that improved school attendance not only impacts academic outcomes but also contributes significantly to social and emotional well-being. Should you have any inquiries regarding attendance or seek guidance, I encourage you to engage with your school, as they are well-equipped to assist you. Our EWO is Michelle Lyons and she is in school on a Monday each half-term.


Children should arrive at school from 8.30am and the school day starts promptly at 8:45am. If a child arrives at school after 8:45am, they will be deemed late. Registers close at 9:00am. and arrival at school after this time, without prior approval or extenuating circumstances, will be recorded as an unauthorised absence.

Pupils arriving at school after 8:45am. must enter through the front office and report to our Administration Team. Pupils leaving school for any reason must report to the office before they go so that we can ensure that they are appropriately signed out. Registers are also taken when the children return to classes after lunch. Unexplained absences will be investigated by the attendance officer.
