Absence Reporting

If your child is absent, please ensure you report this at your earliest convenience.

To report illness, it is useful to use the studybugs app, this is a free app, or you can register on the Studybugs website -

For all other absences please phone the school absence line on 01483 529889 and leave a message detailing why your child is absent.

P.E Days.

We would like to continue the current practice of children wearing their PE kit into school on the day they have their PE lessons. This reduces the amount of PE time being wasted and also makes sure everyone has their PE kit for the lesson!

PE days will be as follows:

Year Three - Monday and Tuesday,

Year Four - Monday and Wednesday,

Year Five - Monday and Tuesday,

Year Six - Tuesday and Thursday.


Children eat their lunch, whether a school lunch or packed lunch, in our dining room
