Attendance & 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 8.35am 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 promptly at at 8.55am.


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 and that a late slip is completed.


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 Pastoral Officer Miss Williams or Child Welfare Lead Mrs Bradley. 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 If you need any help or support with your child's attendance and punctuality please do get in contact with us and we will do everything we can to try and help to support you.


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