You are able to notify the school by telephoning or leaving a message on the school answer phone on 01726 812006 before 9am. If you have been unable to notify the school of an absence, please ensure a note is sent to the class teacher when your child returns to school.
Biscovey Nursery and Infants' Academy expects full attendance at all times. Lateness in the mornings disrupts the class routine and will affect your child’s progress. We expect children to arrive at school by 8.55am in order for lessons to start promptly at 9am.
The school operates a first day contact regarding absences, therefore you may receive a call or text asking for an explanation for your child's absence.
The value of regular attendance: Your child must attend school regularly to learn how to read and write and be able to interact with others. Research shows that pupils perform better if their parents or carers emphasise the importance of attending school.
Your legal responsibilities: You have a legal duty to make sure your child attends school regularly and punctually. The school and the Local Authority monitor your child’s attendance and will take action if it is poor.
Biscovey Infants' School's attendance target is 96%.
