Late arrivals should report to the school office so that they can be registered and school lunch arrangements checked.

Late pickups and taxi pickups will be from the school office.  (If you are persistently late collecting your child from school, your child may be taken to our After School Club where charges may apply).

However, please do try to ensure you are on time at the beginning and end of the day as this allows your child to be ready for learning in the morning and to share their learning after school.

If your child is absent please contact the school first thing in the morning on the each day of absence in accordance with our attendance policy
