At Peel Hall we believe that the regular attendance of each and every pupil is vital. Regular attendance allows each child to have access to an education that they are entitled to by law and, as a school, we encourage high levels of attendance and punctuality.
Registration is at 8.55am and children can enter school from 8.45am.
We have a daily Breakfast Club to promote attendance, punctuality, healthy eating and parental links with the school.
Breakfast Club is very flexible and there is currently no pre-booking required. You can just turn up on any morning that suits you. Breakfast club runs from 8.15am - 08.55am and children must arrive by 8.45am at the latest. The pedestrian gate is opened FROM 8.10am to enable you to escort your child/children to the main entrance and wait with them until the doors open FROM 8.15am. Toast and juice are available daily and the cost is 20p per day per child, currently it is cash only and children pay on arrival. There are board games, activities and books available for the children to entertain themselves until the start of the school day. From 8.45am onwards children are allowed to go to class when they are ready and younger children are escorted to their classrooms.
Where a late attendance is unavoidable, for example due to an appointment, parents should accompany a child who arrives late at school so they can be signed in. The signing system will show a message saying 'hurry to class' once you have signed your child in correctly.
Holidays during term time
Holidays during term time will not be authorised unless there are extenuating circumstances and then only at the discretion of the head teacher. All requests for leave must be in writing, forms are available from the school office.
Fixed penalty notices are £120 per parent per child, reducing to £60 if paid within 21 days of the notice being issued. School will apply for a fixed penalty notice after 5 days unauthorised absence (10 sessions).
