Attendance and Punctuality

Spring Grove stresses the importance of all pupils having good attendance. We believe that when children develop positive patterns of attendance and punctuality they have the best possible chance of thriving in school.

Children may enter the school between 8.45 am and 8.55 am. The teachers will be in their classrooms from 8.45am to welcome them. All children should be in class by 8.55am  ready to start learning. Nursery’s 15 hours run from 8.45 am to 11.45 am.

School ends at 3.20 pm for Infants and 3.25pm for Juniors.

Holidays during term time

Parents should avoid taking children out of school during term time, as this proves very disruptive to children’s progress. If leave is taken during the term, it will be classified as unauthorised absence, apart from in exceptional circumstances. If families take term time leave, they may jeopardise their child’s place in school. Please speak to the office staff before taking children out of school during term time.

Attendance Target

Parents should aim for  95% or higher attendance for their children. If a pupil’s attendance drops below this, it will be monitored by the school in conjunction with the parents. The Education Welfare Service will become involved when attendance falls below 90%. It is in every child’s best interest to be learning in school for the maximum amount of days each term. Please see our Attendance Policy.

  • Welcome

    We offer you a warm welcome and thank you for showing an interest in Spring Grove Primary School.

    Spring Grove is a happy school with a positive and inclusive ethos, within which we aim to make everyone feel safe, secure and valued. We are proud of our diverse cultural community and encourage all children to achieve their personal best, academically and socially. We believe that children flourish when home and school work together. We encourage parents to become involved in their children’s education and the life of the school. We aim to work with parents and carers to develop caring attitudes, thoughtfulness, mutual respect, self discipline, self confidence and good manners alongside academic progress. We treat all of our pupils as unique individuals who will become independent learners and view their education as a positive experience.
