Attendance at any school within the Small Schools Multi Academy Trust:
All children are expected to arrive at school each morning between 08:30 and 08:40 in order to attend registration at 08:40. Any child arriving after 08:50 a.m. will be recorded as “late after registration”. Those arriving after 09:10 will be recorded as having an unauthorised absence, unless a reason is received from parents/guardians when an authorised absence will be given.
Children are registered for afternoon sessions at 13:15. Any child arriving into school after 13:30 will be recorded as having an unauthorised absence, unless a reason is received from parents/guardians when an authorised absence will be given.
If children are sick and unable to attend school, parents are requested to inform the school by 09:30 that their child will not be attending that day. This is particularly important if the child normally walks to school alone. All unexplained absences will be followed up by the school office with a text message or telephone call to ensure that the child is safe. In cases of prolonged absence the schools will work with parents, carers and professionals to try and minimise the impact the absence will have on a child’s learning.
Please be reminded if your child arrives after 08.40 to bring them to the main office so they can be signed into school and taken down to class. This will minimise the disruption to the other children in the school who have already started lessons.
Our Attendance Policy will provide you with more information.
