At Sowe Valley Primary School, we believe that the most important factor in promoting good attendance and punctuality is the development of positive attitudes towards school. To this end, we strive to make our school a happy and rewarding experience for all children. We will reward those children whose attendance and punctuality is very good. We will also make the best provision we can for those children who, for whatever reason, are prevented from coming to school.

Our School Day

The school day starts at 8.55am

If your child is not able to attend school please contact the office on the day to inform us. Tel 02476456063
