Lanchester Primary School

...for a better future


As a community school we expect children to attend on time every day in order to make rapid progress in their learning and access the full curriculum.


We do understand that children fall ill and absences are at times unavoidable.  Individual children who attain high attendance will be celebrated each half term.


Good attendance is considered to be above 96%.Attendance will be recorded on the annual reports you receive from the class teacher.


The school is here to support you and it is our aim to have every child at school ‘on time every day’.

Absences - If your child is ill or has an appointment please notify the school in writing as soon as possible. You can email the office: Alternatively please supply a handwritten note to the school office.


Appointments – if your child has a medical appointment and you wish to collect them earlier please notify the school in writing.


Late arrivals – Lanchester CFS operates a 'soft start' between 8.45 am and 9.00am. Please make sure you allow extra time for any delays, because after 9.00am, your child will be marked late.

Please note that if your child arrives late for the start of school you are now required to sign him/her into the Inventry system on arrival at Reception (a member of the admin team will help you with this).
