Attendance

Staff are unable to accept responsibility for children in school or in the school grounds before 8.35am and after 3.10pm, unless they are attending out-of-hours activities or prior arrangements have been made. Once the entrance gates are opened in the morning, the children can go directly to their classroom.  Please contact the office staff if you are unable to collect your child on time. If you have arranged for someone to collect your child on your behalf, a note should be put in your child's planner and they will need to show this to their class teacher. If there is a last minute change when your child is already in school, please call the school office before 12pm.

It is vital that parents provide us with an up-to-date home address and telephone number, along with daytime contact details.  We also require details of an additional contact, should we be unable to reach you in the event of an emergency.

Absence

If your child is absent from school for any reason, (including medical appointments) please telephone and leave a message on the absence line as soon as possible. Please leave a message by 9.00 am each day of their absence. Office staff will then deal with all messages received.

If your child walks to school on their own, please telephone the school by 9.00 am so that we can account for your child.

It is essential that you provide us with a written note when your child returns to school, otherwise the absence will be recorded as 'unauthorised'. Any absence can result in a loss of continuity for your child’s education and upset their balance of learning. As a school, we are required to provide details of all unauthorised absences to the Local Education Authority.

Absence for Medical and Dental appointments

Every effort should be made to avoid making medical and dental appointments during school time. Where this is unavoidable parents should put this in writing to the teacher in the planner and attach a copy of the appointment card or letter before the date of the appointment.

Attendance

Excellent attendance is fundamental to an excellent education. We have a new Attendance Policy, which is available to view on the website. This has been developed in conjunction with local schools and follows the policy outlined by the Education Secretary, stating that children are not to be absent from school for holidays or other non-essential reasons during term time. Only in exceptional or mitigating circumstances will an absence be approved. Should you need to make such a request, please complete a leave of absence request form attached here: http://www.salfordsschool.org/uploads/asset_file/Application_for_leave_of_absence_2019.docx.pdf  and return via the class teacher or the school office.

Punctuality

Please ensure that your child arrives at school at the correct time.

 

School ends between 11.50am and 12:10pm on the last day of each term (but not half term holidays).
