Make attendance school a priority


Never arrange medical, dental or hospital appointments during the school day unless this is absolutely necessary.

We know travel companies don't make it easy for families, but never book a holiday during school time, your child will fall behind, and you will receive a fine.

Don't allow your child to stay off school to make it easier for yourself, this is against the law.

Keeping your child off for their birthday is completely unacceptable, please never allow this to happen.

Help your child stay on track


Find out if your child is coping with their work and if they're up to date, missing school will make them fall behind. Check your child's attendance with school, you might not realise how much school they have missed.

Encourage your child to stay back at school to attend homework clubs or extra lessons, this way you can be sure they're up to speed with their work. If your child forgets their homework, PE kit, stationery etc, it will cause problems for them in school, please help your child become organised at home.

School closure – Severe Weather Conditions


We will make every effort to keep the school open in the event of severe weather. However, in extreme cases the school may have to close due to severe weather or due to any other emergency.
Information about any closures will be available from the following places:-
North Tyneside council website (changes to usual school hours / access indicated in bold) – http://my.northtyneside.gov.uk/category/130/school-closures

Radio Newcastle – 95.4fm @bbcnewcastle
The school will also send a text to all parents/carers who have registered a mobile phone number as a contact number with the school. If you have not provided a mobile contact number we would strongly advise you to do so.

The school will endeavour to inform parents and carers of any closures as early as possible and for a morning closure by 8.00am at the latest. If you are unsure of the school closure please do not hesitate to contact the school. Unless you hear otherwise through one or more of the sources above, please ensure your child is sent to school as per usual school timings.
