Frequently Asked Questions

How do I report an absence? 

In order to report a child’s absence you must report the absence to the school by phone or email before 9am on the first day of your child’s absence. This must then be repeated for each subsequent day of absence.  

The number to call is 01858 575307 or email 

Can I take my child out of school during term time? 

The school adopts a strict authorisation of absence policy and in order to take your child out of school for an authorised period of absence you will require the permission from the Executive Head Teacher. When making a decision on whether to authorise an absence the head teacher will follow a long standing set of guidelines that are designed to ensure the best outcome for your child’s education. 

Can my child walk home on their own? 

Only children in our Tall Oaks Class are allowed to walk to or from school on their own and only if we have received permission in writing from their parent/carer giving permission for their child to do so.  

Can I visit the school? 

Of course! The school, senior leadership team and our staff are always happy to welcome you to visit our school! Contact the school office to arrange an appointment.

Do you accept children from outside the catchment area? 

Absolutely! South Kilworth is a small village and so only 27% of our children come from the village.  We have children from all the surrounding villages, Lutterworth, Rugby and Market Harborough. If you feel South Kilworth C of E Primary is the right school for your child we will do our best to ensure they become part of the South Kilworth School family. 

How big are the class sizes at South Kilworth? 

Our class sizes tend to range from 20 – 30 students per class. 

How will the school keep me informed of events, news or school closures? 

We email a detailed newsletter regularly, this contains past, current and future events. Alongside this we update parents regularly through our website and facebook accounts. In case of a school closure you will be notified by email or text and we would advise you to check the website and social media for regular updates.
