What to do if your child has a medical appointment?

If your child has a medical appointment ie. doctor, dentist or optician's appointment, please send them to school and collect them after Registration.  It is also important to return your child to school after the appointment so that they are here for Afternoon Registration and lessons.

What to do if your child requires medicine in school?

To support your child's return to school we are happy to supervise the administering of prescription medicine if parents have given the school written consent by completing and signing a Medicine Request Information Form.  Click on the link below to access the form and complete and bring it to the school office.  Alternatively you can collect a copy at the School Office.

School attendance campaign

Moments Matter, Attendance Counts

Spring term 2024

A good education is vital for children and young people and regular attendance at school is a key factor in opening up more opportunities in adult life. If your child develops a habit of regular school attendance, they'll have a positive attitude at school and beyond.  

School is the best place for children and young people to enjoy developing independence, building friendships and learning with their friends. All Portsmouth schools are committed to enabling all children to develop the best versions of themselves as individuals, achieving the very best they can and learning how to develop the personal relationships and interests which will enable them to live rewarding lives.  

As a parent or carer you have a hugely important role to play in your child’s education. Your support is crucial to make sure they attend school regularly and to give them the positive encouragement they need. Your child’s school will be keen to help you support your child in their learning. We strongly encourage you to ask questions and make sure you have the information you need from the school to help you do this as well as you can. Find out more -
