Parents & Carers
It is important that all pupil absence is reported to the school office on the first morning of absence. The school office opens at 8.00am and there is an answering machine where you can leave messages.
It is a legal requirement that all parents and carers report when their child is absent from school, whatever the reason, giving details of when and how long their child is likely to be absent. Unauthorised absences will be investigated by the school attendance officer. Please call school to report any absence.
Amendments to the 2006 School Attendance regulations removed references to family holiday and extended leave as well as the statutory threshold of ten school days. The amendments made it clear that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. If you do really need to take your child out of school during term time you must make it very clear in your request how the circumstances are exceptional.
Ofsted Parent View
Parent View allows parents and carers to give their views about their child’s school at any time of the year.
It features 12 questions that cover a range of issues important to parents, such as how well the school deals with bullying, the quality of teaching, whether the level of homework given is appropriate and a final question of whether or not a parent would recommend the school.
Once a small number of surveys are completed, the results for the school are visible in Parent View although individual responses are not.
Please note that it is very important to give your views before an Ofsted inspection.
Attendance & Punctuality
School lunch is cooked on site and costs £2.20 per day for each pupil in years 3 to 6 and nursery. Pupils in reception to year 2 qualify for free school meals under the government scheme. Children requiring a packed lunch are able to bring this in with them.
Parents/Carers can use ParentPay to pay for their child/ren's lunch online.
