Lawrence View Primary and Nursery School promotes the view that regular attendance at school is important to ensure the best possible learning outcomes for all our children.
We support the view that every lesson counts and so encourage our children to attend every session possible. We promote a positive attitude towards attendance and punctuality amongst children and young people and their families.
If your child is too ill to come to school, please phone the school office on 01773 719463 and advise of illness and the predicted length of time that the child will be away from school.
Holidays in school time will not be authorised unless the absence is due to exceptional circumstances.
All requests must be made in writing to the Head Teacher, prior to the holiday being taken. Fixed penalty notices are issued by the local authority to parents who take their children on unauthorised holidays during term time and for unauthorised absence from school.
Please see Mrs Gascoigne for more information if required.
Snow & Bad Weather Information
Closing the school due to extreme weather conditions
In the event of extreme weather, the Head Teacher will ring Capital FM and Radio Nottingham (local radio) weather line, in order for them to announce the school closure, at the earliest possible opportunity. The Head Teacher may delegate this responsibility to another member of staff. The Head Teacher or the delegated person will then report the closure on www.ngalerts.co.uk and inform the LA of the school closure and update the website.
The Head Teacher will send a message via email to all parents informing them of the closure.
If possible, a member of staff will be in school to meet any children/parents who come to school, having not heard the radio announcements.
Should any children arrive at school unattended, the Head Teacher or another delegated member of staff will call their parents. If the parents are not available, other numbers on the school contact list will be used, in order for the children to be collected.
We work effectively with Hall park to ensure a smooth transition for our Year 6 pupils.
School Food Plan legislation states that children of all ages should have access to milk during the school day.
Our school milk scheme is administered by Cool Milk. To register your child for school milk, please visit
