The register is called at 9.00am. The register is an important legal document which must be marked accurately and on time. Please make sure your child is in class by 9.00am so he/she is present when the register is called. Punctuality is important both at school and later in life. The register is sent down to the office once it has been marked. Any child arriving after this will receive a late mark.

The registers are officially closed at 9.30am. Children arriving after this time will be marked with an unauthorised absence, unless parents have previously informed the school of an acceptable reason for the late arrival, e.g. a medical appointment.

If you do arrive late, please report to the main office so that the register can be amended.

If your child is absent from school for any reason it is extremely important that you let the school know, as the reason for absence has to be recorded in the register. Please telephone the school on the first day of absence.

Registers are checked daily to make sure all absences are explained and school will ring up to check reasons for absence if you have not let us know why your child is not at school.

Any continued problems regarding attendance and punctuality will be referred to the Education Welfare Officer.
