Attendance/ Punctuality

 

Children need to attend school every day unless they are ill.  If your child is absent from school you must telephone the school before 9.30am on 0208 540 1053 or email: attendance@garfield.merton.sch.uk

The school will not authorise leave of absence unless there are exceptional circumstances.  Holidays during term time must not be taken and will not be authorised.  If you do take your child out of school for a holiday then you may incur a fine from the Local Authority.

Every term, children with 100% attendance will be awarded with a certificate and small prize in a special attendance assembly.

The school gates close at 8.50am.  Parents who arrive late must sign their children in the late book in the office.  Parents who consistently send their children in late to school will be written to and, if no improvement, then invited to a meeting at school to discuss how we can work together to improve punctuality.
