At Cherry Garden Primary we expect children to attend school every day that they are well enough to do so. If your child is unwell and cannot attend school, please call the school office before 8.30am on 01454 867260.

Our school has a clear Attendance Policy outlining our approach to securing good attendance - this can be accessed in the Policies section of this site. We have produced a leaflet for families which summarises the main points in our Attendance Policy - this can be downloaded below.
