Attendance and Punctuality

Attendance and punctuality are vital to children’s on going education. The site is open from 8:30 and registration is at 8.45am. Please ensure your child is in before that time so they can make a good start to their learning. Children should aim for 95% or greater attendance across the year. Whilst we understand that sometimes children are ill, it is important that they do not miss any more learning and experience than they must.

If your child is unwell or has an appointment please could you contact the school office on 01795 477417 to inform us of your child's absence, alternatively you may leave a message on our answer phone facility. You may also email us on

Grove Park Primary School operates a 'first day calling' system for pupils who are not in school. Miss Savage and Mrs Bond, our attendance administrators , will contact you during the morning, if no notification has been received by the school office and record a pupil's absence accordingly.

If your child will not be attending due to a family/personal reason please write to Miss Savage and Mrs Bond  with the details for the absence, again this can be via email.

If you have any further questions regarding absence please do not hesitate to contact the school office with any questions you may have.
