Attendance and Punctuality

At Woodland, we place great importance on all of our children attending school regularly and punctually.  In line with the school’s comprehensive risk assessment, children can currently be dropped off from 8.30am in their allocated zones to ensure that the number of people on the playground before school is kept to a minimum at any one time. Gates will close at 9.00am.

On the rare occasion that a child arrives later than 9.00am, please ensure that they escorted to the school office by an appropriate adult.

As a school, we ask that parents/carers inform us fully of all absences, with telephone calls made at the earliest opportunity.  If this contact is not made, parents/carers will be contacted by our Home School Liaison Officer or Child Welfare Lead. In addition, a dedicated email address has been set up to report any Covid related absences – 

The staff team are on hand to support any questions or queries on 01707 620305 or at

Under the Education Regulations 2013 Amendments, holidays in term time will not be authorised by the Headteacher.
