Attendance & Punctuality
At Pleasant Street our aim is for every child to achieve and reach their full potential. To achieve this regular attendance and good punctuality is vital. We have been working very closely with the school Educational Welfare Officer to improve attendance and punctuality in school.
Due to COVID-19 the start and end times of our school day have changed. Please note the information below.
What time does my child start school and which entrance do they use? What time does school finish and where do I collect my child?
We are staggering the start and end times for pupils to reduce the number of children entering school at the same time and the number of parents in the immediate area around school.
Children will be allowed to enter their classrooms up to 10 minutes before their allotted start time. This will hopefully enable a more staggered start to the day. TAs will be at entrances 10 minutes before start time and teachers will be in classrooms 10 minutes before start times. (During these 10 minutes there will be basic skills activities available for children to complete).
For safety reasons it is imperative that you make sure that your child enters school at the correct time through their allocated entry point. You must also collect your child on time from the allocated exit point.
As stated in our Code of Conduct, please do not congregate outside of school at drop off and pick up and please adhere to social distancing rules. Liverpool City Council have asked parents to wear masks at drop off and pick up times (15/9/2020)

I have more than one child in school and their start times/home times are different, what do I do?
In order to reduce the number of parents waiting in the immediate area around schools, siblings will enter school together. They will meet a member of staff at the top gate at the earliest time slot for your children. For example if you have a pupil in KS1 (Class 1 or 2) they can enter school from 8:35-8:45am. If you have another child in Class 6 they will also have to enter school at this time.
Children in KS2 classes will not be allowed to leave early at the end of the day, you will need to wait for them to finish at a social distance to others.
What happens if my child is late for school?
