Good Attendance and Punctuality guide for parents

Attendance & Timekeeping

At Cedars, we are aiming to set the highest standards of attendance and punctuality. Our target for attendance is a minimum of 95% for each class. We believe it is important to work with parents to improve punctuality and attendance. If your child is absent from school please phone the school office as soon as possible to tell us why your child is absent, and when your child is expected to return to school.


The school phone number is: 01254 261609.


As a school, we are unable to grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. Please refer to our Extended Leave of Absence Policy, which is available on our school website for further guidance.


Please ensure your child is on time every day in school. We have a Breakfast club running every morning at the Upper School from 8.00am to 8.45am. If an early drop off would benefit you and your child then please ask for further information at the school office. The cost is £1.00 each morning, this covers their food, drinks, supervison and access to several activities.


  • Days off school add up to lost learning

  • Please don’t let your children miss out on the education they deserve
