Absence

When you are contacting the school regarding your child being absent, please be specific about the reason so that we can ensure our records are accurate. For example, if a child has been sick, please specify that, or if they have a chest infection, then specify that. This helps us to keep an up to date record of illness we have in the school at any one time. Thank you.

Let's Celebrate

Pen Licence

To promote well presented work during lessons we have introduced a 'Pen Licence' scheme.  

To be awarded a licence each child must present their work to a high standard across the curriculum and meet the following criteria;

  • Joined
  • Clear
  • Evenly spaced
  • Correct ascenders
  • Correct descenders
  • Correct case
  • Full stops
  • Capital letters.

Children are awarded their licence during our celebration assembly and have the opportunity to write with a pen of their choice. This allows them to celebrate their success daily and is a great way to keep their standards of handwriting high.
