We expect parents to ensure that their child attends school every day unless they are ill. 

On the first day of absence, you need to inform the school of the reason by telephoning the school office on:

KS1 0121 464 2128 / KS2 0121 464 2126


Parents should not arrange medical and dental appointments in school time wherever possible, however we do appreciate hospital appointments are an exception to this rule.

Parents must not book holidays during term time, these will not be authorised.





We expect the children to be on time for school every day. Please ensure that your child arrives at school in good time for the start of the day.
