On both the High St and Manor Way sites a 'soft start' is now in operation for all children. Once the gates have been opened the children are expected to go straight into class. Upon entering the class there will be an activity for the children to do until registration.

Please be on time to collect your child at the end of the school day. Young children can get very distressed and anxious if you are not there on time to meet them. Children from Nursery to Year 4 should be collected by an adult.

For children in Year 5 and Year 6 the school gives the option to go home on their own. If you wish for your child to go home alone please inform the Manor Way school office in writing. Please note, Year 5 and Year 6 who go home alone are expected to behave in the manner in which they would in school. As the children are wearing school uniform they are not only representing themselves but also the school. Should any child choose to behave inappropriately or unsafely the school has the right to take away this privilege.

It is very important that children arrive on time and that there is regular attendance.


Regular attendance is most important if children are to make progress and take an active part in school life. Children should only be absent from school in the case of illness, treatment. In the case of pupil absence parents should always inform the school on the first day of absence. Always inform us by telephone, in writing or in person as soon as your child is absent so that we can record the reason on the register.

Please try to make non - urgent dental and medical appointments outside the school day.

Any absence requests must be made in writing to the Head teacher and will be unauthorized.

Please keep your child at home if they are unwell. The school needs to know the reason for your child’s absence, particularly if an infectious illness is involved. You can obtain advice from the school office for when it is appropriate to return to school following an infectious illness.
