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.).


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 new band system seems has integrated into the school day and it has achieved its two main aims of allowing the children to have their choice of food and also to reduce food waste. Below is a link to the choices the children have during the week. 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.
