We expect our pupils to be punctual. The school starts at 8.45 am. ┬áIf a child is unwell, parents should inform the school before 9 am of the morning of the first day of illness and subsequent days. This information will be passed on to class teachers and absences recorded accordingly. A letter explaining the absence should be sent on the child’s return to school.

We ask parents, wherever possible, to take holidays outwith term times. Absence due to family holiday will be logged as unauthorised.

Requests for longer than 10 days absence from school for a family holiday should be addressed to the Head of Education and not the Head Teacher.
