Good attendance, and being on time every morning, is very important.
Good attendance means that children get the best out of their education. This not only results in strong learning and progress - it boosts confidence & social skills too.
Absence and/or lateness will result in gaps in learning and may mean that a child doesn’t get the best out of his/her time in school.
We know that sometimes, of course, absence is unavoidable. However, we work hard with parents and children to ensure that attendance is as good as possible.

Counselling Directory - Offers a service to help you to get counselling support.
We really do appreciate feedback from parents/carers, to find out about how you feel about the school and give you the opportunity to express your views. Do feel free to let us know what has gone well or what would make things even better.
We would also like to encourage parents to update the parent view site, as and when they want to. This is something that Ofsted will look at when they carry out school inspections.
