school hours & leave of absence requests
Arriving and Leaving
Nursery children start school at 8.30am until 11.30am each day and the afternoon session runs from 12.15 pm to 3.15 pm.
School starts at 8.50 and we open doors and begin supervision from 8.40. Please make sure that children arrive on time, but not too early! Children finish school at 3.15 - please collect them promptly.
If your child is ill or unable to attend school for some other reason, please let us know, either by telephone, email, text or note on the day s/he returns to school.
Leave of Absence Requests
The school actively discourages parents from taking holidays during term time. Such holidays mean that school work is missed and creates the possibility of children falling behind their peers. No leave of absence for holidays will be granted.
Requests for leave of absence (other than holidays) will only be granted in exceptional circumstances on a case by case basis. The school need at least two weeks’ notice of any requests for absence. This will enable the teacher to know in good time if a child will be unable to take part in any educational visit, class assembly, or major production etc.
One day leave of absence will be granted for religious festivals but a Leave of Absence Form must be completed in order for this to be authorised.
