Whilst recognising that attending nursery is non-statutory, we aim to promote full attendance for all of our children. School attendance and punctuality are
crucial in ensuring that children get the most from their education. Good attendance habits established from a young age are developed for life.


  • Staff will maintain admission and attendance registers. Absences will be recorded and attendance will be monitored.

  • Parents/carers are asked to telephone the school to give reasons for absences or lateness at the earliest opportunity.

  • Parents/carers must inform the school if the family is moving or if they intend to withdraw their child from nursery.

  • An absence of more than three weeks will be monitored by phone or letter, and the child may be removed from the school register.

  • Parents/carers should ensure their child is dropped off and collected on time. In cases of frequent lateness parents will be contacted by phone or letter
