Pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are welcomed. They settle quickly because staff understand their individual needs.
Attendance and absence
At Foresters Primary School we are committed to providing a full educational experience for all pupils. We believe that, if pupils are to benefit from education, regular attendance is vital. The government defines good attendance as at least 95% as it has been proven that children with this level of attendance are higher achievers. Regular and punctual attendance ensures that your child settles well, is happy at school and able to take advantage of all that Foresters has to offer.
However, if your child is ill then they should stay at home.
Sickness and/or diarrhoea - if your child has had an upset stomach, they should not return to school until 48 hours after the last bout of illness.
If your child is unable to attend school for any reason, it is important that you inform the school of the absence before 8.30am, either by e-mail to email@example.com or by telephone and leave a message on the answering machine, clearly stating:
- Your child’s name and class
- The reason for their absence (including details of any illness)
Please contact us every day of absence (unless notified at the beginning of the absence period).
If your child is absent after being sent home unwell from school on the previous day; please still call or e-mail to confirm their illness or reason for absence.
