Our school day for children from Reception to Year 6 is 08:45 – 15:20. Classroom doors are opened at 08:45 and learning begins at this time. Registers will be officially closed at 9 a.m., as will the school gates. If you arrive late for school, you must come to the school office through the main entrance sign your child in. Similarly, the school day ends at 15:20.


You may not realise it, but persistent lateness really does add up...




If your child is not in school

If your child is unwell and unable to come to school, please inform the school office of their absence before 9.00 a.m. on that day. Please give details of the absence as, in this current time, we require more information than ‘my child is not well’. E.g., my child has been up all night with a sickness bug and will not be in school today. You can do this by calling 01922 721073 (option 1 if out of hours).


How we will manage attendance at Butts Primary School


Mrs Evans is the Attendance Lead and she reviews individual children’s attendance and meets with the Education Welfare Officer, as and when needed. These meetings are fed back to senior leaders and class teachers. The appropriate course of action to support our children and their families is then decided. In order to do this consistently, we follow the school's attendance policy. Please always keep your child’s class teacher in the loop should you have any issues. They are here to support you.


We thank you for your cooperation in ensuring that our children are in school, and on time. Please don’t hesitate to contact our school office for any further support with this.
