Toll Bar Primary School

Together we shine bright and reach high! We are Toll Bar!


Good Attendance is vital if your child is to benefit fully from their education.  Good attendance is promoted each week and awards are presented to children with 100% attendance each term.  We expect all children to achieve at least 96% attendance. 

All absences must be reported to the school before 9am each day and followed up with medical evidence. Medical evidence can be a letter, text, prescription or prescribed medicate with a named label. Where possible, please bring your child to school before and after their appointment.

Attendance is monitored by the Education Welfare Officer and should your child's attendance become a cause for concern they may request that a Fixed Penalty Notice (fine) be issued.

We would like to encourage all children to have an attendance figure above 96% and we are here to help support you and your child in achieving this. Therefore, please feel free to contact us for any support that you think you may need.

The school doors open at 8.30am and registration is at 8.45am.  The gates will close promptly at 8.45am and if you arrive with your child after this time you will have to sign in at the office and a late mark will be given.

If you arrive to school after registration closes at 9.00am you will still sign in at the office.  You will be given a mark that shows you as being in school but will not count towards your attendance.
