Punctuality & Attendance

The children are expected to be punctual and to attend school every day. In accordance with the Educational Welfare Act it is mandatory to report any child who misses 20 days or more in a school year. Parents/Guardians are obliged to provide a written explanation on their child’s absence from school. If your child is genuinely ill, they should not be sent to school.

It should be noted that the entrance to the school is through the church grounds NOT THE STAFF CAR PARK. Children should not be on the school grounds before 8.50am – they remain the responsibility of their parents until then.

If you are collecting your child, please note “home time” and try to be on time collecting them – small children get very upset if they are waiting when all the other children are gone. We cannot mind children after school hours.
