Absence and Lateness

School Times

Nursery

9am – 3.10pm

Reception to Year 6

9am – 3.15pm

Our gates open at 8.45am and children are expected to be in their classrooms ready to learn by 9am.

Attendance

Children must only be absent from school if they are ill.

If your child is ill or unable to come into school for another reason, please telephone the office to let us know the reason for their absence. The school’s telephone number is 020 7229 6540. If you are unable to telephone, please email the School Office at info@colville.rbkc.sch.uk.

Appointments with doctors, dentists or at a hospital should be made outside school hours or in the holidays. Where this is not possible, the appointment card must be brought into the School Office the day before so that the register can be marked accordingly.

If parents and carers do not provide a reason for the absence it remains unauthorised.

If a child has missed a substantial amount of time from school, the headteacher will contact the parents or carers. The Education Welfare Officer may also be in contact with the family.

Children and classes are rewarded for good attendance and the rewards include:

  • attendance certificates
  • privilege points and tokens that are earned towards prizes as part of our 'In it to win it' incentive scheme.

We reward good attendance because we know it raises achievement.

Details of the attendance figures are published weekly in the school newsletter.

Punctuality (Lateness)

It is very important that your child has the right start to their day. Children who arrive late miss learning time and this causes them to miss important instructions or explanations.

Learning time starts at 9am. Please ensure that your child is in school on time. Children who arrive late must report to a senior teacher and their reason for lateness will be recorded.

Children who arrive after 9.15am are recorded as an unauthorised absence and this is recorded in the register.
