The core purpose of what we do at Shiney Row Primary School is to support all our children to be the very best that they can be.  Everything we do is aimed at helping children succeed as happy confident learners.

 All the staff at Shiney Row Primary School are committed to providing the highest standards of teaching and learning, through a combination of challenge, support and encouragement. We want all children to do their very best and enjoy coming to school to learn in a safe and happy environment.

We want children to develop a lifelong love of learning and we place achievement at the heart of what we believe in. We will provide the best conditions for learning that we can so all children have access to a variety of learning experiences and opportunities during their time at Shiney Row Primary School.

Norovirus schools guide

Norovirus, also known as the winter vomiting bug, is the most common stomach bug in the UK.

NHS Choices, in collaboration with the Food Standards Agency, has put together this useful printout to help schools and parents understand Norovirus, from detection to prevention.

Shiney Row Primary School can now accept payments via the secure online ParentPay System. This provides a simple, safe means to pay for school meals, clubs, educational visits and much more.


School education lays the vital foundations of a child’s life.  Research clearly demonstrates the link between regular attendance and educational progress and attainment.  All children should have full and equal access to all a school has to offer.  As a school we will encourage parents/carers to ensure their child achieves maximum possible attendance and in turn a great start in life.

Arrival and Registration

All children should be at the main gate ready to come into school at 8:50 am where staff will take responsibility for their class. The register is taken twice a day, a day counts as 2 attendances. Morning registration ends at 9am. If a child arrives after the registration period they will be marked as late. After 9.10am this will become an unauthorised absence. The afternoon register is taken at 1pm.

Every half-day absence from school is classified by the school as either authorised or unauthorised.

Authorised absences are morning or afternoons away from school for medical/sickness reasons where a child is unfit to be in school, medical/dental appointments which unavoidably fall in school time, or emergencies.

Unauthorised absences are those which the school does not consider reasonable and for which no ‘leave’ has been given. This type of absence can lead to the use of sanctions and/or legal proceedings. This includes:

   parents/carers keeping children off school unnecessarily

   truancy before or during the school day

   absences which have never been properly explained

  children who arrive too late, without prior warning, to get a mark

  shopping, haircut, treating headlice, birthdays, looking after other children, day trips and holidays in term time that have not been agreed.

Absence Procedures

Parents must contact school as soon as possible on the first day of absence, before 9am. Before and after office hours messages can be left on the school answering service. Report to the school reception from 8:45am
