Please be in the playground before the beginning of each session and please try to be prompt when picking up your child at the end of the day.


If you are late, please bring your child to the main school office and sign the late book.


If you wish to speak to your child’s teacher at the end of the school day, please wait until all children in your child’s class have been dismissed from the playground to ensure their safety.





Attendance is extremely important – children only get one chance at school. If your child is ill and can not attend school, please telephone us on the first day of absence with the reason. The telephone number is 0191 2007236. If for any reason you can not contact us, we will telephone you to find out the problem.


This is called our 'First Day Response’.



If you wish to request leave of absence for your child, you must complete a leave of absence form (available from the school office) which must be submitted 6 weeks prior to the absence.


Please note that governors do not authorise holidays during term-time.


Mrs Graham, School Business Manager works closely with the Education Welfare Officer (EWO) and the Senior Leadership Team to ensure challenging attendance targets are met.



The governors support a school attendance target set at 95.7%.
