Late/Absence Procedures

 

Procedure for late children:

 

  • Any child who arrives after 8:45am is deemed as being late for school.
  • They will need to be signed inon our electronic system at the school office. A reason for their lateness will also be required.
  • The office staff will then mark their name with a L Code on the register. Too many L Codes over a 100-day period could result in a Fixed Penalty Notice being issued. 

 

 

Procedure if a child is absent because of serious illness:

 

  • On the first day of absence (and every day afterwards until they return) parents/carers should notify school by telephone: 0115 978 6351 or text: +441158240163. They should also provide the reason(s) why their child will be absent and state what the likely day of return will be.

 

  • If a telephone call or text message is not received, school will contact parents/carers to enquire about their child’s absence. Please provide at least two contacts in case of an emergency.

 

 

Procedure for home visits from senior members of staff:

 

If no contact can be made regarding a child’s absence, then the following will also occur:
