Late Arrivals/Late Collections
The school operates a ‘Late Book’ system whereby any child arriving after 9.00a.m. must report to the office, where a record is kept as to the reason for the lateness. Regular lateness has to be reported to the WAS - Warwickshire Attendance Service - and constitutes as an unauthorised absence.
If there is no-one to collect your child by 3.10p.m. he/she will be put into our After School club whilst we try to contact you. The charge for this will be the same as the after school late pick up charges of £6 for every 15 minutes or part thereof.
If there is no-one there to collect a child at the end of an after school session, then we follow WCC guidelines. Please make sure you keep your contact numbers up to date as the guidelines recommend that the school tries all contact numbers, and if no one can be reached, we then contact Social Services, followed by the Police.
