School Attendance


Regular Attendance at school is important.
If your child misses the basic skills in Primary School they can experience difficulties with their learning.
Regular attendance is essential to make sure learning is not disrupted.
The school should be notified of the reason for a child’s absence.


The school canteen provides lunches five day per week. Parents write name, grade and order on a brown paper bag containing money. Children place this in a special grade basket which is taken to the canteen and returned with the made up order at lunchtime. Orders can also be made using Qkr.
