The school day begins each morning at 8:55 and pupils will be greeted by members of staff to ensure a smooth transition from their transport into the classroom

The school day ends at 3:00pm and pupils will be supported through the transition either to parents or onto school transport for their journey home.

If you are collecting or dropping your child off outside of the above hours we ask that you contact the school and inform us. This can be done through the use of the home/school diary or by phoning the school office on - 01535 603041.

Please collect or drop your child off via the main entrance on such occasions and staff in reception will ensure they are marked as present or absent on the school attendance register.

At Beechcliffe School we believe that every day counts in in your child's education and that every day of absence means that pupils miss out on exciting opportunities to grow and develop.

We accept that there may be occasions when pupils are ill and cannot attend school.

We ask that you contact staff in the office (01535 603041) to inform us about these.

Taking pupils out of school during term time requires permission from the Headteacher. You will be asked to complete a form to request this absence. The absence will then be recorded as authorised or un-authorised.

The Headteacher has the right to implement a monetary fine for un-authorised absences during term time.
