School begins promptly at 8:50 am. If your child arrives after this time they must report to the school office so we can mark them as present but late on the register. If your child has not arrived at school by 9:30, then a text/phone call will be made to establish why your child is not in school. It may be that they have arrived late and NOT reported to the office but we still need to establish where they are. If you do not notify school of the absence the mark given will be unauthorised.
If your child has to attend a doctor’s/hospital appointment, the school needs to be notified in advance where possible and any appointment cards/letters need to be shown.
We understand that there are sometimes circumstances in which your child cannot attend or may be late and in these situations we ask that you approach us to discuss. We want to help your child to receive the very best out of their time at our school and excellent attendance and punctuality is key.
How do we promote good attendance in our school?
Trewirgie Junior School regularly promotes good attendance in school. Each week we inform parents of the house with the most points through the school newsletter (click here). We also discuss the importance of attendance in school with the children, in assemblies and lessons.
At the end of the school year children who have 100% attendance receive a certificate.
We also give out a grand prize each term of amazon vouchers for attending every day.
If you wish to discuss anything at all concerning your child's attendance/punctuality please contact the school office. We are here to help.
