If your child will not be attending school on a particular day for one reason or another, it would be appreciated if you would ring us at school prior to 9.00am and leave a message for the class teacher. If you know ahead of time that your child will be absent or late, we would appreciate being told. A written note after an absence is required if we are not informed in any other way.Children also require written permission to leave the grounds during the day for any reason, except to go to their own home for lunch.
