If your child is away from school for any reason, please telephone the school as soon as possible. Any absence not explained is recorded as ‘unauthorised’.
Registers are completed as soon as the children come into school and any child not present when the register is returned to the school office will be marked absent.
If children arrive late they need to go to the school office to let the office staff know they have arrived. Their absent mark will then be changed to a late mark.
We have a number of staff qualified to undertake first aid. Where you child has been treated by a first aider for any cut, graze, bump or bruise, you will receive a text message from the school office.
Where children have bumped their head and there is a visible mark or swelling, parents may be telephoned and advice given on follow-up treatment.
Where a child requires emergency treatment, this will be sought by the staff ‘in loco parentis’ and parents will be contacted.

My favourite lesson at school is English. I can let my imagination run wild!

I like school because we do lots of fun activities!
The best thing about school is seeing my friends and the teachers.
It is really easy to make new friends. That is an amazing thing about this School!
I love doing our Thursday activities. They’re fun and teach me something new.
