Attendance and Punctuality 


It is very important that children arrive on time for school – learning starts immediately they arrive in class.  The main school gate opens at 8:40 and children and parents can wait in the main playground until the bell rings at 8.50am. Although formal lessons don’t start until 9:00, this 10 minutes gives children a valuable opportunity to read marking comments from the previous day, complete any outstanding work, talk to their teacher individually, and generally get organised for the day ahead.

Children who arrive late feel less settled in the first lesson as well as disrupt other pupils’ learning. It is also important that children are collected on time at the end of the school day.

Regular attendance at school is essential for pupils to achieve their full academic potential.  It is a parent’s legal responsibility to ensure their child attends school.  When a child is ill or absent, we ask parents to inform the school office by telephone on the day of absence, otherwise the absence is recorded as unauthorised on their school report.
