Regular school attendance is very important to ensure your child’s overall success and enjoyment at school.  The school day at Stafford starts at 8.35 a.m. with the Register closing in class at 8.40 a.m.  This means that children need to be in their class ready to start their learning.

The main school gates at Stafford will be locked at 8.40 a.m. and this means that children will need to buzz to be let onto the school site and then sign in at the school office.  If your child walks to Stafford unaccompanied please ensure they know this.

Punctuality also plays an important part as children arriving late to school often miss out on the most important information of the day.  It also causes disruption to other pupils’ learning when children arrive part way through a lesson.

If your child is absent from school for whatever reason, please telephone the relevant school office daily.  Please send in a letter confirming their absence when they return to school.

If you have any concerns about your child’s attendance, please contact the Attendance Officer.

Thank you for your continued support.
