At St John of Beverley we recognise the need for children to attend school regularly and punctually so that they get maximum benefit from the learning opportunities that are offered. Regular attendance boosts academic achievement and enhances personal development.
The School Day
Mornings: Foundation Stage/Key Stage 1 - 8:50 to 12 p.m.
KS2 - 8:50 to 12:10 p.m.
Afternoons: All Key Stages: - 1:10 to 3:30 p.m.
Playtimes: 10.45 to 11.00 a.m.
Afternoon: At the teachers discretion.
Absence from school
If your child is ill and is not going to attend school, it is essential that we know as soon as possible. Please contact the school by telephone before 9.00 a.m. It is a legal requirement that you let us know your child's name, their class, the reason for absence and how long you expect them to be away from school.
Medical / Dental Appointments
Please advise the school as soon as possible if your child needs to leave school to attend an appointment. However, parents should try to make routine appointments out of school hours or in the school holidays if possible, as time out of school disrupts pupils' learning.
