The School Day
Your child should arrive at school shortly before 8.45am. Registers are taken at 9.00am and any child arriving after this time will be recorded as late.
Classes are organised into groups of 30 so there are two classes in each year group except for Year 3 & 4 where we have three classes.
Reception, Year 1 and two Year 3 classes are located on the downstairs floor of our building.
Year 2 are located in the new elliot buildings facing the main playground.
The remaining Year 3 and Years 4, 5 and 6 are situated in the upstairs classrooms.
Holidays and Requests for Absence
From September 2013, the Government withdrew the right for head teachers to grant 10 days holiday leave to children during the school year. View the South Gloucestershire attendance leaflet here.
The new guidelines are very specific that absence from school may only now be granted by the head teacher in ‘exceptional’ circumstances. Holidays can only be taken in term time in exceptional circumstances, for example because parents are not permitted by their work to take time off in school holidays or if parents are unable to afford to take their holiday in school holiday time.
The head teacher will only consider applications made using the ‘School Application for Absence Form’ which is available from the school office and should be submitted two calendar weeks ahead of the date requested for absence. Any request for holiday will not be granted during Terms 1 and 5 due to children settling into school and because of school assessments.
