Late/Absence Procedures

Late arrival

Our playground gates close at 8:55am.  Should you arrive after this time, please go to the office so that your child can be signed in and taken to class by a member of staff. 


Absence due to illness - 01494 862263 #1

If your child is unwell and cannot attend school, please inform the school office by 9:00am via the school absence line. Call us on the usual number and select option 1.   


If your child is absent for a few days, we do ask that you continue to keep us informed either by telephone or email on a daily basis.


If your child has vomited or had diarrhoea, they should not return to school until 48 hours after the last episode.  This is in accordance with Bucks County Council policy and plays an important part in preventing the spread of infection. 


Our children are young and prone to sharing their germs!  We do all we can to maintain a clean learning environment and regularly teach our children about germs and hygiene.  Please support us in promoting healthy habits such as hand washing, covering mouths when coughing or sneezing and using and disposing of tissues hygienically. 


Leave of absence

Leave of absence request forms are available from the school office. Forms are also available from the forms section of the website here.  Requests must be made in writing, in advance, and are dealt with on a case by case basis by the Head Teacher in consultation with the Governing Body.
