If your child arrives between 8:45-8:55am then they should enter school via the school office. Should they arrive after 8:55am then they should enter school through the school office and will be recorded as ‘late before registers close’. If they are after a certain time then they shall be recorded as ‘late after register closes’.
Please ensure your child arrives on time as even ten minutes late daily can result in 50 minutes overall.
Please call the school office by 9:30 at the latest to inform us why your child is absent. This should be done by calling: 01384816930 option 1. If the call doesn’t get answered then please leave a message and we shall add the information provided to the school register.
If we have not heard from you about your child’s absence then we shall do the following:
1) Make a phone call home to the numbers on the emergency contact information form.
2) Send a text message to contact 1 on the list.
If we are still unable to make contact then due to recent high profile cases we are required to conduct a ‘safe and well check’ by visiting the home of the absent pupils.
If we still cannot make contact then we have been advised by Dudley Safeguarding Board to contact the police or Children’s Services.
Thank you for your support
