Children are expected to attend school regularly, and punctuality is important. Register is taken promptly at 9am, children arriving after this time will be considered as arriving late.
Children should only be kept at home if they are ill and a phone call should be made to school by 9.15am. If no phone call is received by the school with a reason for absence then Mrs Couchman or your child's class teacher will telephone you.
All absences must be formally confirmed in writing by a parent/carer. We are now required by law to keep records of unauthorised absences and these have to be published annually.
Any requests for absence should be made to the Head Teacher and/or governing body and no absence will be authorised unless in exceptional circumstances.
Children who arrive late to school, after the register has closed, are recorded as late. This may be investigated by an Educational Welfare Officer and you can find out more about this by using the following link to access Cornwall Council's Education Welfare Service :
