Attendance Protocol


Good attendance at School is crucial if children are to achieve their full potential. The School is committed to supporting all families in maximising attendance. Parents can also play their part by working with the school and their children to promote good attendance. The following points will help parents to improve their child’s attendance.

  • Phone School on your child’s first day of absence and only allow days off for genuine illness.
  • Ensure your child attends on time and every day.
  • Where possible, try to arrange medical appointments out of School time. Always ensure your child attends School immediately before and after medical appointments that are unavoidable.
  • Avoid holidays in term time.
  • Know your child’s attendance figure and talk to them about it.
  • Support your child’s participation in class.
  • Encourage your child to contribute towards class attendance incentives.
  • Talk to the School very early on if you have any problems in relation to your child’s attendance or if any issues arise.
  • Praise and reward your child’s good attendance!

Procedure for Bad Weather/School Closure


If the weather takes a change for the worse, we would like to inform you of the plan we will follow if we need to close the school:

  • We will contact Radio Leicester if the school is to close and information will be broadcasted on 104.90FM, normally from 7.30am onwards (it is quite often before). They also put details on BBC Local News Leicester website. Please do not ring the Radio Station.
  • At the same time, or earlier, we will place a banner (notice across the opening page) on the home page of this website.
  • If you do not hear to the contrary assume that the school will re-open as normal the following day.

    We will endeavor, where possible, to keep the school open, but keeping the children and staff safe is paramount. If you have any concerns about travelling in the snow please don’t and inform the school as soon as possible. We will do our upmost to have the phone manned, whatever the weather.

    If the school needs to be closed during the school day, we will contact parents as quickly as possible and also follow the above procedure.

Welcome to our Breakfast Club.


Why not let us make breakfast and do the washing up for you?

No charge for Pupils

Breakfast Club is held each school morning, in the Library 8.00am – 8.45am.

Each pupil can select a bowl of cereal, a buttered bagel and a cup of fresh juice – at no charge.

Children can attend the breakfast club unaccompanied by an adult, as staff will take the children to their classes at the end of breakfast club.

As well as ensuring your child has a good start to their day by eating breakfast, coming to the Breakfast Club also means that your child is at school ready and on time for the start of school. If you have not already tried our Breakfast Club come along, there is no obligation to attend every day.
