At Stacey Primary School we believe that regular attendance is important to ensure the best possible outcomes for all our children.
We celebrate high level of attendance across the school, classes and for individuals. We are proud of our excellent attendance records and we thank you for your co-operation and help.
We feel the whole school community takes responsibility for attendance. But especially you as parents/carers are responsible for ensuring that your child:
If your child is absent please inform the school of the reason by personal contact, telephone call or email: 02920 499508, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arriving late to collect your child from school can be extremely distressing for them.
You are expected to collect your child promptly at the end of the school day. We understand there may be occasions when you may be late arriving due to traffic etc… in these circumstances, please contact the school office immediately on 02920499508 so we can let your child know and make appropriate arrangements.
If you are regularly late for the school pick up then we will have to address this issue with you.
In the first instance we will discuss this with you and endeavour to support you if you are experiencing any difficulties. If this continues we will issue you with a warning letter outlining that regular late picks up will have a negative impact upon your child’s emotional wellbeing and if it continues then school will have to follow Local Authority Child Protection Procedures.
