School starts at 9:00am and all pupils should be on time to help them get the maximum benefit from school. Pupils arriving after the register has been taken must report to the office.
If a pupil is prevented from attending school by reason of sickness or other unavoidable cause, it is the responsibility of the parents to notify the school of the pupil's absence. This should be by telephone on the first day of absence and confirmed in writing. Parents should avoid, if possible, making medical/dental appointments for their child during school hours.
The Education Welfare Officer comes in regularly to check registers and follow up any unexplained absence or persistent lateness.
