The school day

The school day runs from 8.55 am until 3.30 pm. Parents should ensure children arrive at School from 8.45am for registration at 9.00am, and ten minutes after the end of lunchtime. Any child arriving after the close of registration is recorded as late for that session. If a child arrives late, parents should report directly to the School Office (late is defined as the child’s name having being called and/or the register having already been sent to the office.).

 

Absence

If your child is going to be absent from school for any unavoidable reason, please contact the School by 9.15am on the first morning of absence. If you cannot telephone between School opening and 9.15am, a message can be left at any time on the School’s answerphone. Parents should advise the expected date of return.

We actively discourage parents from taking children out of School during term time since this can cause considerable disruption to their education. Occasionally, leave of absence for a special family holiday outside normal School holidays is requested, but regulations permit the granting of more than two weeks leave in term time in exceptional cases only and parents cannot assume it will be granted automatically. At all times, permission should be sought from the Headteacher and an Application for Leave of Absence Form, available from the Office, should be completed and returned at least two weeks in advance. The conditions under which term time absences may be granted are contained in The Statutory Framework and the Department for Education and Employment (DfEE) Guidance, and further details can be found within the School’s Attendance Policy.

 

School Dinners

The school has now moved across to TnS Catering. School dinners currently cost £2.40 per child per day and is currently only payable by cash or cheque to the office. We are in the process of testing an online payment system which we hope will go live later in the 2019/20 Autumn term.

The children make their choice at the start of the day so that they definitely know what they will be having. If you would like to pay by cheque, please make cheques payable to CCC Sutton CE (VC) Primary School. The same would need to apply for any school trips being paid for. Below is a link to the TnS website and there is a copy of the menu at the bottom of this text.
