Blaise Primary and Nursery School


As a school, we place great value on attendance as it has a strong direct link with your child’s achievement and well-being. Recent research shows that children with lower attendance are less likely to achieve in their learning than their peers.


The school day starts at 8:45am and finishes at 3:15pm, which totals to 32.5 hours per week. 


The school is now operating within Bristol City Council’s Fixed Penalty Notice system.

 Penalty notices will be considered for:

  • Accumulated unexplained or unauthorised absences
  • Unauthorised holidays in term time
  • Excessively delayed returns from holidays without prior agreement with the school
  • Cases of persistent and regular late arrival, after the register has closed

We work hard alongside Parents/Carers to support and promote regular attendance; every session counts.
