It is essential that your child attends school every day.

If your child is ill, please telephone or email the school office

Mary Howard Primary 01827 383245 or

St Andrew's Primary 01827 373266 or

Please let us know before 9:25am on each day of absence. If we do not receive a message, we will text / call you to make sure your child is safe at home.

The Local Authority's Educational Welfare Officer regularly visits school to check on attendance and will follow up all concerns and any absences that are unaccounted for. Failure to send your child to school may result in legal proceedings.

If possible, medical and dental appointments should be made out of school hours, but we appreciate that this is not always possible.

Attendance marks are given for being in school. Medical appointments, illness and holidays / leave of absences are recorded as absences.
