Please note:

Late Marks

A late mark 'L' (late but attending) will be recorded against any pupil arriving in school after school doors close at 9am. If your child arrives in school after 9.25am then the register will show them as a 'U' (unauthorised absence) even though they are in school. All children arriving from 9am through the school entrance must be signed in by their parent/carer in the Late Registration Book. This book is checked weekly by the school office and children who have more than 3 late sign-ins per half term will be sent a letter from the Attendance Officer. If these lates continue, contact with the parent will be made requesting a meeting with the Headteacher, and if, after that meeting, your child is still receiving late marks, the school will contact the Education Welfare Officer for advice.

Collection From School

Unless a letter authorising a child to walk home has been signed by a parent of a Peregrines class pupil, ALL pupils have to collected at the end of the day by a parent or an authorised person. Children are seen out of class at the end of the school day by the class teacher and should not be waiting outside of the classroom for their parent. If at school drop-off, you know that somebody other than a parent or authorised person will be collecting your child, please write in the collection book inside each classroom by the exit door who will be collecting that day.  If your child is collected regularly by a relative or another parent, please send an email or letter in to the school office informing us of who is authorised to collect each child, and we will keep that information on their pupil file.

Please understand, we will NOT allow a child to go with anybody we have not had authorisation for - this is for obvious safeguarding reasons. If we hold your child until we can contact you in this event please understand that we are trying to keep your child safe.
