Attendance, Sickness and Medical Appointments

Good attendance is essential if your child is to achieve the best results possible while at school. The Government expects pupils to have a minimum level of attendance of at least 97% and we at St Anne’s will be working towards this target for the forthcoming year.

Times of the School Day.

Nursery Morning Children  –  8:45am – 11:45am

Nursery Afternoon Children   – 12:15pm – 3:15pm

Reception – 9:00am – 3:05pm

Years 1 and 2 – 9:00am – 3:10pm

Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 – 9:00am – 3:15pm


In the event of your child being too ill to attend school, you should call the School Office as soon as possible to advise that your child will be absent. The Office is open from 8:00am and you should call no later than 8:45am, so the class teacher can be informed accordingly.

Upon returning to school the child should bring a letter explaining the reason for their absence together with any medical evidence.

Medical Appointments

All medical appointments should be made outside school attendance hours where possible. If appointments are made during the school day, we will need to see evidence of the appointment from the relevant doctors, dentists or hospitals.
