Late/Absence Procedures

Attendance at Brocklewood 
In order for your child to reach their full potential, it’s so important they have a good attendance record at school! Please read the Brocklewood Primary School Attendance policy and find out more information you might not know!

In school, Attendance is managed by our Attendance Officer Miss Bell, our office staff and Mrs Tarrant.  They are always there to answer and questions you may have regarding your child’s attendance. Please see the policies page for the most up-to-date policy.



The School Day

Morning Nursery                                 8.30am – 11.30am
Afternoon Nursery                              12.15pm – 3.15pm
Foundation and Key Stage 1                8.40am – 3pm
Key Stage 2                                         8.45am – 3pm

We request that children do not come onto the school premises until 8.35am. School is closed until the bell goes at 8.40am. If it is raining KS1/F2 pupils will be let into classrooms slightly earlier and KS2 pupils and parents will be let into the corridor when staff are available.


We would ask that parents do not walk through school to take their children to class.


We ask that all nursery parents wait outside the door to main reception when collecting their child until a member of the nursery staff collect them. This is to avoid excess noise and congestion in the reception area.

When you collect your KS2 child at 3pm we request that you wait in the playground for them. Of course, if you wish to visit your child’s teacher, you are welcome to come into school after 3pm, this is better than first thing in the morning when the teacher is settling the children in.

KS1/F2 pupils are collected from classroom doors.
