Admissions and Attendance
Parent/carers who are applying for a position at the school please apply via the local authority through the folowing link.
Local Authority Admissions Procedure
Parents will be informed by the local authority that their child has been allocated a place at Thames View Junior School.
Parents will then be invited for an admissions interview to be held at the school by booking an appointment with the Access & Attendance Officer (Denise Crudgington). The purpose of the interview is to welcome families and children to the school and to exchange important information. Please follow the link for the Thames View Junior School Attendance Policy 2019-2020
Parents and children will be given a start date and given the information to purchase a school uniform. A parent pay account will be set up to enable easy payment for school dinners.
The child/family will be shown around the school and where possible, see their class and teacher.
On admissions day; the pupil will be met by the Access & Attendance Officer in order to allow for a smooth transition.
The parents will be informed of progress of the child as appropriate.
At Thames View Junior School we believe that attendance and punctuality are key in ensuring children make rapid and sustained progress.
We work with families to aim for all pupils to have attendance above 97%. Our attendance officer, Sara Pearson, advises on attendance management issues and takes referrals on pupils who attend irregularly.
In situations where parents fail to ensure regular school attendance, the Access and Attendance Team will consider issuing a Fixed Penalty Notice – £60 payable within 21 days, rising to £120 payable within 22-28 days. Non-payment will result in prosecution.
If your child is going to be absent please call school on 0208 270 4310 before 8.45 am.
When reporting a child’s absence via phone call please include:
