Attendance Information

If you have any questions or concerns about your child's attendance, please do not hesitate to contact Miss S Irvin, Attendance Officer on 01702468047 or by emailing attendance@pgps.porticoacademytrust.co.uk

Absence Procedure
If your child is absent for any reason, you should let us know by telephoning the school 01702468047 (option 1) on the morning of absence.  Please provide your child's name, class and reason for absence.  Please also keep us updated if the absence continues into the following day.

Appointments

We encourage all appointments to be made outside of the school day. However, if your child is absent from school due to an appointment, please provide the school office with a letter or appointment card so the absence can be recorded accordingly. 

Lateness at the start of the day

When a child arrives late at the start of the school day, it is very disruptive to their learning and the learning of their classmates. Please ensure your child arrives promptly at their allocated year group time below. 

Current school start and end times (from 19th April 2021) 

We ask that all parents/carers and children adhere to our one-way system. 

When entering the school grounds, you are asked to enter via the playground on the bridge at Southchurch Avenue and leave via Lancaster Gardens.
