Term Dates and ATTENDANCE
Where a family chooses to take a holiday during term time, the absences will be coded as unauthorised, and as such, Headteachers may request that the Local Authority issues a Penalty Notice. For more information please visit the following page Attendance information for schools.
“The school and its staff regard the regular attendance of children at school as being vital to each child’s education and development. It is for this reason that nonattendances (however short or infrequent) are treated seriously. It remains the policy of the school to only sanction non-attendance during term time in exceptional circumstances. If your child has unauthorised leave of absence, you may either be issued with a Penalty Notice of £120 per parent per child (discounted to £60 if paid within 21 days), or your case could be referred by the Local Authority directly to the Magistrates' Court for the purposes of a criminal prosecution.” - Leicestershire County Council Guidance Notes Unauthorised Leave of Absence.
The School Day
Classroom doors are opened at 8:30am and the school day starts at 8.35am, doors will be closed promptly at 8.40. After this time all children must be brought through the main entrance and signed in at the office.
The school day ends at 3.00pm.
School cannot take legal responsibility for children who arrive before 8.30 am. Please do not allow children to play on the equipment, or grass mound before and after school for their own safety. Please ensure that children disembark from bicycles and scooters as they enter the school site.
In the interests of health and safety, parents/carers are asked to allow children unobstructed access in entering and exiting the school in the morning and afternoon, in order to ensure that teachers are able to check that all children enter and leave the building safely.
