The attendance of children who arrive late will be registered as follows:
- A child arriving after the register has started (8.55am) but before the register has closed (9.10am) will be coded as “late” (code L).
- A child arriving after the register has closed (9.10am) will be coded as “Late after registration closed” (code U). This is counted as an “Unauthorized Absence” (see appendix for use of other codes).
The full Attendance Policy can be found on the First Federation Trust link.
Should you require a paper copy of any policy or other information free of charge, please contact the school office (see Contact Us tab).
Relationships and sex education (RSE) and health education
The Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (England) Regulations 2019 make Relationships Education compulsory for all pupils receiving primary education. They also make Health Education compulsory in all schools except independent schools.
The implementation of the regulations was delayed because of Covid-19. Schools have to start teaching the new content by at least the start of the summer term 2021.
In primary schools, parents can withdraw their child from sex education beyond the national curriculum for science, but cannot withdraw them from Relationships or Health education.
This policy is currently being updated to reflect changes in national policy.
