At West Lodge we believe that regular school attendance and punctuality is the key to enabling children to maximise the educational opportunities available to them and become emotionally resilient, confident and competent adults, who are able to realise their full potential and make a positive contribution to their community.
Our day starts at the following times:
Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 at 8.50 am
Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 - soft start at 8.40am.
Lateness is actively discouraged. Lates are recorded on a daily basis, including the time the child arrives in school and any reason given.
Please read our Attendance Policy below for more information.
If you are not sure how long your child should be absent from school due to illness, the document below will provide a guide for you.
