Every moment of your child’s education is important! Please help us to improve our attendance by sending your children to school every day and making sure that they arrive on time!

Lateness

Being on time is vital as arriving to school late can be unsettling for the late child, the teacher and other children in the class.  Every day, Reading takes place from 9:00 – 9:30 in each class.  Even being 5 minutes late, can have an impact on the child getting the full benefit of the activity.  Please arrive at school between 8:40am - 8:50am.

Whilst we appreciate on some occasions lateness cannot be avoided, please ensure that you are allowing enough time in the morning for your journey.

We thank you for your continued support and co-operation.

Authorised and Unauthorised Absence. What is the difference?

Authorised Absence

This is defined as any absence which is unavoidable and will be considered once a reason has been provided. Reasons that may be authorised include:

REMEMBER!! If your child is absent from school, you need to call the office before 9.15am on 01992 701012 or use the form on SZapp to let us know. Please try your best to ensure that dental and medical appointments are made outside the school day. Unless a parent informs us of the reason for any absence, that absence will be unauthorised.

You will receive a phone call from the office if you do not inform us as it is our duty to ensure your child is safe. If we cannot make contact with you then you may receive a home visit from a member of staff.

Unauthorised Absence

This is defined as any absence which is avoidable and where the child would be able to attend school if the parent(s)/carer(s) had not deemed otherwise.

Unauthorised Absence may be if your child does not attend because of:

  • Going on holiday or travelling abroad
  • Days off for birthdays, shopping trips
  • Feeling tired
  • Bad weather
  • Non urgent appointment
  • Parent unwell to bring them to school
  • Birthday

Holidays

NO holidays, for any reason, will be authorised and fines will be issued by the Education Welfare Service.

Every moment of your child’s education is important! Please help us to improve our attendance by sending your children to school every day and making sure that they arrive on time!

We thank you for your continued support and co-operation.

Academic Review Day

Years 1 to 6 Academic Review Days 20th and 22nd October 2020 Academic Review days are an opportunity to review your child’s learning with their teacher. Due to the current precautions we are taking due to the Covid pandemic, we will be carrying out the Academic Review meeting through the phone. Teachers will phone you at the time you select using the booking process. The meeting will cover progress, attitude to learning and how we can support your child’s progress. The class teacher will also discuss their current attainment and expected end of year outcomes related to the new National Curriculum. It is also an opportunity for you to discuss any concerns you may have. You will also be able to find out how best to support your child’s learning. If you are unable to attend on this day, please contact the school office or speak to your child’s class teacher to arrange an alternate time and date. How do I book an appointment? We are using an online tool to book Academic Review Day, where you can see and select the time that you would like. Booking an Academic Review Day time-slot can be done by following the link below, or if you have the Szapp app, there will be an ‘Academic Review Day’ option, which will direct you straight to the following link: https://honilandsps.schoolzineplus.co.uk/view-session/13 If you are unable to access the link, there will be adults with iPads around the school in the morning to support you, or you can come into the school office and use the iPad there. Please see the guide on the reverse of this letter for further information. Here is a guide to booking your session: http://www.schoolzine.co.uk/sk-booking-guide
