Regular and punctual attendance is very important at Columbia School. Children who are late miss an important part of the day and disturb the learning of other children with their late arrival.

Children who are late will be met by the learning mentors in the lobby area to get their attendance mark for the day. Parents should not accompany their children into school but leave them at the office.

Holidays in school time are never allowed.  Columbia School implements the statutory Local Authority Policy for Fixed Penality Fines.

All absences must be reported to the school on the morning of the absence.

Call 020 7739 3835. Dentist, doctor and hospital appointments require a appointment letter or card before they can be authorised.
