Sir Thomas Abney Primary School


It is very important that all children arrive at school on time.

Children who arrive late disrupt the learning of their classmates and miss important teaching sessions at the beginning of the day.

Children must be ready to go into their classrooms at 9am each morning.

If children are late they must collect a late slip from the infant foyer before joining their class. This ensures all children are registered.

Please also make sure that your child is collected promptly from school at 3.30 pm. At 3.35 pm we will take any remaining children to the school office where they will be signed into the ‘Late Book’ and you will be contacted to arrange collection.

If your child is ill and unable to attend school you must telephone the school office on the first morning of every day of their absence. Permission will not be given for absence due to a family holiday.

Pupils who are frequently late or absent are referred to the Educational Welfare Service.
