Attendance - Punctuality
School starts at 8:30am - Arrive on time every day
It is very important that all children arrive to school at 8.30am every day. If your child arrives after 8.40am they are late and will not be able to come into school via their usual morning entrance. You should make your way to the main school entrance with your child where a Learning Mentor will greet you and mark your child’s attendance.
Please note that if your child arrives to school later than 8.40am, we are required to mark them as ‘late - after registration is closed’ (which is an un-authorised absence) for that half day session.
If your child is regularly late, you will be asked to accompany your child to the classroom along with the Learning Mentor, and to attend a meeting to discuss how punctuality can be improve.
