Late/Absence Procedures

At All Saints CE Primary School, we value parental support with children's attendance and punctuality.


The children can come into school from 8.45am each day but should all be seated and ready to start their first task by 8.55am every day. Any child arriving after this time should go directly to the office and will be marked as late in the register. Please note that gates will be locked at 8.55am and access will be through the main office. Any lates will be recorded by the office. If children are late for school, they often miss out on important work and instructions for the day. Our Education Welfare Officer closely monitors punctuality as well as attendance.


If your child is poorly, please let the school office know either by sending an email or phoning. If you choose option 1, you can leave a message for the office staff detailing the reason for your child's absence.


Please note that the school are not able to authorise any holidays in term time.
