Attendance and Punctuality

It is important for your child to arrive at school in good time in the morning to start the day in a relaxed and calm way. If children arrive late it is unsettling for them and their class.                                                                                                                          

Please ensure that you are in the playground at 8.55am. The playground will be supervised from 8.45am for parents who need to leave their children in order to go to work.

If you arrive at school after 9.00am then we ask that you inform the office the reason your child is late so that we can make our returns to Camden Local Authority. We ask that you do this so that we do not have to ask your child.

If your child is absent from school, please contact the office on the first day of absence. On returning to the school we require a written explanation.

At the end of the day the teachers will also escort the children to the playground to ensure that they go home safely.

Children are expected to attain a minimum of 97% attendance or above so we ask that you do not take holidays in term time.

If you need to take your child out of school during term time a letter requesting permission should be sent to the Head of School, leave will only be granted for unavoidable, expectional cricumstances. Please see the Attendance and Punctuality Policy on the policy page of the website.
