Visitors to school 

All non essential visitors will not be able to access the school - including parents. The secretary will pass on any messages or items as necessary if they are left in the school porch. If you require your child to leave school early or if they have taken ill at school you will be requested to complete the 'Signing out Register' in the school porch before leaving the school premises. Your co-operation with this important matter is much appreciated by all staff.

Absences from school

If your child is absent from school due to an illness you will be requested to complete a pink absence note upon their return to school. School attendance is monitored regularly and Parents may be requested to provide medical evidence if their child is absent for a prolonged period or is absent from school for one or two days on a regular basis. It is always in the schools best interest to work with Parents to ensure that children maximise their potential by having a good school attendance record.
