We operate a staggered start and ask that children arrive at their allocated time slot to minimise queuing outside the school gate. Sibling can go straight to class when the younger child is dropped off and collected when the older child is collected.
To keep everyone safe we ask that parents social distance outside the school gate and wear a mask when coming onto the premises.
Please follow the one- way system in operation when on site.
Start and Finish times are:
|Year Group||Start Time||Finish Time|
Gates open at 8.40 am with class doors opening at 8.45am. Please make sure your child arrives promptly as learning does begin at 8.45am with morning tasks for the children to complete. Any child arriving after 9.00am will be marked as ‘Late’
We encourage regular attendance and monitor this closely. Every session counts!
Leave Of Absence During Term Time
Section 7 of the Education Act 1996 states that:
‘’The parent of every child of compulsory school age shall cause him to receive efficient full-time education suitable… to his age, ability and aptitude, and … to any special educational needs he may have, either by regular attendance at school or otherwise.’’
Regular and punctual attendance of pupils at school is both a legal requirement and essential in order for pupils to maximise the educational opportunities available to them. The Academy will not authorise leave of absence during term unless there are exceptional circumstances. In law, if a person with parental responsibility fails to secure a child’s attendance at a school at which they are a registered pupil and that absence is not authorised by the school. A fixed penalty notice maybe served. Penalty Notices supplement the existing sanctions currently available under Section 444, Education Act 1996 or Section 36, the Children’s Act 1989 to enforce attendance at school where appropriate subject to statutory defences.
For safeguarding reasons, we ask parents to complete a leave of absence form (available from the school office) for any leave of absence during term time.
