Punctuality

Please ensure your child is on time and ready to enter their classroom door between 8.45 and 8.55.
We closely monitor attendance, punctuality and its impact on children’s learning.  Your child must be in class by 8.55 a.m. to register.  The class doors shut at 8.55 and for the staff and children’s safety the door remains closed. If you arrive after 8.55 please bring your child to the main entrance to sign them in. 

Appointments

If your child has a dentist, doctor or hospital appointment he/she must be brought to school as normal. You will need to collect and return your child from the office, and sign our appointments book. Please make sure you advise your teacher in advance of a meal choice if your child returns before lunch and has school dinners.

Attendance & Holidays in Term Times

Children of school-age who are registered at a school must, by law, attend school every day. Attendance is important, not just because the law requires it, but because it is the best way of ensuring that a child makes the most of the educational opportunities which are available to him or her. There may be occasions when a child has to miss school - for example, if he or she is very unwell.

In particular, parents should avoid taking their children out of school during term-time in order to go on holiday.  Holidays will not be authorised and only in exceptional circumstances will be considered by the head teacher to be granted authorisation.  Absence request forms for exceptional circumstances are available here.


Our aims & principles


At Manor Fields School we endeavour to:

  • Promote equality of treatment and equal access to educational opportunity within the school community;
  • Create a calm, purposeful and happy atmosphere within the school which enables all children to access the curriculum;
  • Foster positive caring attitudes towards everyone, in the community by promoting respect, courtesy, tolerance, teamwork, trust and honesty;
  • Acknowledge and value achievements at all levels in an environment that encourages pride in effort as well as achievement;
  • Encourage increasing independence and self-discipline so that each child learns to accept responsibility for his/her own behaviour;
  • Apply a consistent approach to behaviour throughout the school, in partnership with parents and carers;
  • Make boundaries of acceptable behaviour clear and ensure that appropriate behaviour is encouraged and recognised;
  • Promote a sense of direction and feeling of common purpose in an environment which is safe and secure for all in our school community.

There are two basic principles upon which our behaviour policy is based:

  • We believe that when a child demonstrates unacceptable behaviour, it is the behaviour which is unacceptable not the child.
  • We believe it is our duty to promote and encourage positive behaviour and not just react to that which is unacceptable.
