School Office

Session Times
  • The school day begins at 8.55am. The doors open at 8.45am so the children are able to go to their classrooms to prepare for the day. The gates are locked shortly after 9.00 am and opened again at 3.05 pm in line with our security policy. School ends at 3.15pm. Lunch time is 12.15 to 1.10 pm.

Absences from school
  • The school must be informed in writing if children are to be absent for any reason; in the case of illness the office must be telephoned on the first day of absence and any subsequent day on (01926) 492991.

Leave of absence during term-time
  • In September 2013 the government introduced some significant changes to attendance regulations. The amendments set out in Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 govern all requests for leave within term time. Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. it is also the headteacher's responsibility to determine the number of school days a child can be away from school if the leave is granted.

  • If you need to seek an absence during term time you will have to complete a  Leave of Absence Form available from the school office or see the link below; you will need to outline the exceptional circumstances that require the leave of absence and supportive evidence may be needed.

  • This should be done at least six weeks before the suggested leave of absence. Each application will be assessed on an individual basis by the headteacher and chair of governors and they must be satisfied that the circumstances warrant the gratnting of leave. All applications will be considered in the light of a child's attendance. Even in exceptional circumstances the request may not be considered if your child's attendance is below 95%.

School Meals
  • A hot meal and a drink is available at a cost of £2.25 a day, £11.25 for the week. Meals should be paid for in advance for the whole week or regular days on a Monday morning. You can also purchase school meals on a half termly or termly basis. We encourage school meals to be paid for online by logging on to but should you still need to make the payment by cash please send the correct money in an envelope clearly marked “lunch money” and with your child’s name and class (cheques should be made payable to WCC All Saints' CofE Junior School). You can see the current school menu below.
  • If you think your child is entitled to free school meals look online at Free School Meals  or call the Customer Service Centre on 01926 359189. If you are registered for free school meals please let the office now, even if you do not wish to take them, as the school receives much needed funding according to the number of children registered.
