"We can't teach an empty chair."
Good attendance is so important. Even missing one day of school can have a significant impact on a child’s learning. The school day is structured so that learning starts from the minute children walk through the door. We love children to be on time and learning with us every day.
We open school doors at 8:50 a.m. and from this time to 9:00 a.m. children take part in settling activities whilst teachers take the class register. We run a free Breakfast Club every day from 7.45a.m. and Mrs Green and Miss Blanchard will be pleased to support parents who are struggling with getting their child into school on time. Your child is entitled to a full education and, without the initial building blocks, will struggle both in the short term and then later down the line in their school career if they have gaps in learning.
If your child is going to be absent from school, (e.g. for an unavoidable appointment) it is parents' responsibility to let the school know as soon as possible. If your child is absent due to an unexpected event such as bereavement or illness then you must also let the school know on the first day of absence in accordance with the school’s attendance policy. You can notify school of an absence by ringing school - 0151 498 4313. Choose option 1 and leave details of your child's absence and the date you expect them to return. Absence can also be reported using the School App.
