Ramridge Primary School

Where each child shines

School Attendance

Regular school attendance and punctuality are key elements to children succeeding at school.



Children should be on the playground by 8.45am ready to go into class when whistle sounds at 8.50am to be registered. The school gates open at 8.30am and a teacher supervises from 8.40am.


It is parents’ responsibility to ensure their children are in school on time. When children are late for school, they tend to be rushed and start the day in a stressful manner; this is not conducive for quality learning during the day.


School attendance

Children are expected to attend school every day, unless they are sick. If your child is sick, please contact the school and leave a message  01582 729970.


Routine medical appointments should, where possible be arranged outside of school hours or during the school holidays. Should your child have an emergency appointment or a hospital appointment then a letter should be written to school, along with the appointment card/letter which confirms the appointment.


Holidays during term time will not be authorised.

Our Attendance policy is available to read below.
