Visit Willesborough Infant School

Willesborough Junior School

Attendance

To get the best out of school and all it has to offer, children need to come to school every day and be on time.

Gates open at 8.40am
and school starts at 8.55am

If your child arrives after 8.55am, you should come to the office and sign your child in.  Any child arriving this way will be marked as ‘Late’ in the register.

 

Sickness

If your child is off school due to illness or an appointment, please contact the school office between 8.30am and 9.30am, explaining why they will not be with us. 

If you have not informed us of your child’s whereabouts, we have to contact you as part of our safeguarding process.  If your child is going to be in late after an appointment, we ask that you inform us as to whether your child will need a school dinner.

Attendance is monitored regularly by the local authority.  We will inform you if your child’s attendance becomes a cause for concern or falls below 95%. 

Holiday/Leave of absence from school

The school will not authorise time off for family holidays/events.  

Please ask in the office if you require a copy of the updated Attendance policy.  Application forms for leave are available from the school office and need to be completed for any days off from school which are not related to illness.

 Celebrating Attendance

Each week in our celebration assembly we announce the class who has the best attendance in the year group. That class will receive a certificate to display in their class.

Children with 100% attendance for the term, will receive a certificate too during our celebration assembly.
