Please note that Easter falls within the Spring term – we are in for 4 days after Easter Monday before breaking up for the holidays, so please be careful if booking a holiday for that time.

Attendance
Please remember that school starts at 8:50am with registers closing at 9am. Any child who arrives after 9am will have that session marked as an “unauthorised absence” and this WILL impact on their overall attendance figure for the term. The office staff work from 8:30am until 4pm (3:30pm on a Friday) and there is an answerphone at all other times so that you can leave a message regarding any absences.
