*Attendance and Punctuality
Attendance and Punctuality in school is very important and Knowsley Village Community Primary School values each young person as a member of the school community and we positively encourage and celebrate weekly each of the classes attendance and punctuality. At the end of every term/year awards are given to children who have had a 100% attendance record.
If your child is absent from school please contact school as soon as possible to let us know tel: 01512895349. School has a duty of care to contact parents on the first day of absence if school is not notified. The attendance service are informed if contact can not be made.
If you do need to make an appointment which is not an emergency please try to book appointments after school.
Holidays should be taken during the school holidays as school cannot authorise holidays and days out of school . If you require a special leave of absence.A form can be collected from the school office and a meeting arranged with the Headteacher. This does not include holidays.
Any questions regarding attendance and punctionality, please contact school.
The safety of our children is of course up most in our priorities at all times, through our regular safeguarding meetings, pupil voice, safeguarding procedures and governors we ensure all children are achieving, happy and safe within our school.

Health and Safety
Over the summer months, with people being out and about more, Knowsley’s Public Health team are issuing advice and guidance around measles, which is extremely infectious. Symptoms include high fever, sore, red and watery eyes, coughing, aching and feeling generally unwell and a blotchy red / brown rash. You can help by ensuring your children receive two MMR vaccines on time (one at the age of one and the other at aged 3 years and 4 months). If your children have missed these vaccines, it’s not too late, so contact your GP to make an appointment to ensure your children are up-to-date. Teenagers and young adults should also be fully vaccinated before traveling or attending festivals and other summer events. If you have symptoms of measles, stay at home and phone your GP or NHS 111 for advice. For further information, visit www.nhs.uk (search measles).
