A very warm welcome to Borden Church of England Primary School.  My name is Amanda Adcock and I am the Trust Attendance Manager for OCMAT, the Trust of which your school is a part of.


Education lays the vital foundations of a child’s life.  Regular and punctual attendance at school is key to both academic and social development, which in turn will improve the life chances of children and young people and ensure that your child settles well, is happy at school and able to take advantage of all that Borden Church of England Primary School has to offer.


We hope that by working together, your Child’s journey with us is a happy and successful one


Our School Day

Our school gates open at 8.30am to allow pupils 10 minutes on the playground before the classrooms are opened at 8.40am. This is optional for parents to use to support family life and stagger the traffic and parking.

Our gates are then closed at 8.55am so that our children are in class and ready to learn to start at 9am. 

The school day finishes at 3.15pm


Pupils arriving after 8.55am must enter school by the main entrance and report to the Office where you will be asked to sign them in and unfortunately will receive a Late mark. 

It can be very distressing for children to go into class late on a regular basis and they are missing vital input points of learning. It may only seem 5 minutes but this can quickly add up! 



Lost Minutes = Lost Learning!


It is the parents’ responsibility to contact the school on the first day their child is absent by email or telephone before 9.30am. This is a safeguarding issue requirement so that all parties know that your child is safe.  At Borden we operate a first day calling system.

If your child is unwell with a sickness bug we would ask that they remain at home until they are clear of any symptoms for 48 hours.


Our Family Liaison Officer (FLO) is Miss Murphy and happy to work with both children and families to improve attendance and punctuality.  Please come and talk to us if you have any worries or questions.

If you are needing to take an unavoidable leave of absence for your child please complete this form, which will be sent to Mrs Adcock our Trust Attendance Manager, who will respond at her earliest convenience. This can also be found on our website under Parents/Children – Leave of absence.
