It is very important that your child is an attendance HERO!
The gates to school are opened at 8.30am each morning.
The doors will open for your child to enter school at 8.45am, and shut at 8.55am.
After 8.55am, if your child arrives late then they should be brought to the main school office and signed in using the Inventry touch screen system. This will ask for the reason for lateness and record how many minutes.
Absence - illness
If your child is absent through illness then please phone the school office 0113 271 2093 and report this. It is very important that we know where all our children and young people are, especially if they are not in school!
Absence - appointment
If your child has an appointment, for example a doctor's appointment, then please speak to the school office in advance so we are aware. If your child is well enough, then please bring your child to school after the appointment.
If your child's appointment is not until late morning or afternoon, then please bring your child to school as normal and then collect them from school. They will need to be signed out using the Inventry touch screen system. This will ask for the reason for early collection and issue you a permission slip.
Absence - holidays
Holidays during term time are strongly discouraged as your child is missing key learning!
If you do plan a holiday absence during term time, then you must complete a form at the school office. It is extremely unlikely, unless there are exceptional circumstances, that a holiday will be authorised by Mr Hutchinson (Interim Executive Headteacher) or Mrs Munnelly (Acting Head of School).
Teacher will not provide class work for children who miss school time due to a holiday.
Please also note that holidays during school time may result in a fixed penalty notice. This is currently £60 per parent, per child.
