Attendance - Punctuality

Clock showing 8-50am

School starts at 8:50am - Arrive on time every day

 Early Bird Award

It is very important that all children arrive to school at 8.50am every day. If your child arrives after 9am 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 9.30am, we are required to mark them as ‘absent late’ (which is not an 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 improved.
