School times for Academic Year 2023-2024
Gates open at 8.35am, this is to stop pupils and families queuing on the road. Please don't arrive before 8.35am as this causes unnecessary congestion. Gates will be closed and locked at exactly 8.50am. If you arrive after this time, parents/carers will need to bring their child in to school office to sign them in as the registers will already be taken.
One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.
Children who come to school every day stand the best possible chance of achieving well at school.
Lessons are like building blocks. Every block that a child misses will affect their knowledge and understanding and it is not easy to make up for this lost time. One of the best ways you can help your child achieve well is sending them to school every day.
For this reason, we ask you to support us in providing your child with a high quality education by ensuring they are in school and on time every single day, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
If your child is ill, please contact the school office by 9am on each day they will be absent. If your child is ill with vomiting and/or diarrhoea, the school’s policy asks that your child does not return to school until 48 hours has passed since they last exhibited symptoms.
Please book routine appointments such as dental check-ups outside school time.
Attendance should be 95% or above.
Any attendance below 90% is classed as persistent absenteeism and school will need to get involved to improve it.
Application ProcessYou will receive the official transfer documents from the local authority during the Autumn Term of your child final year in primary school inviting you to select your preferred secondary school. The local authority then informs secondary schools of their prospective students in the Spring Term. RFSS’s Transition and Primary Liaison Leader will then keep in close contact with our feeder primary schools and during the Summer Term will visit all primary schools to meet with our new intake of students. We will talk to your child’s teachers about the progress made so far and any strategies used and needs to be addressed.
Year 7 InductionDuring the Summer Term our new intake spend at least one day with us for “Induction Day”, during which they will get to know key staff and students in their new school and familiarise themselves with our buildings and rules. On the same evening, we invite all prospective students back into school with their parents to ensure parents have opportunity to meet key staff and have the chance to ask questions. In-year admissions are currently administered by Warwickshire County Council.
