As a school we have a responsibility to ensure all our children attend school on time every day.
What time does school start?
Our doors open for the children at 8.40am and they are welcome to join their teachers at that time. School starts officially at 8.45am when the bell is rung in the playground. Registers close at 8.55am.
What if my child is late?
All children who arrive after 8.55am are late. They need to sign in at the school office and give their reason for not being on time. They also need to ensure their lunch is ordered.
Why do we do this?
As a school we have a duty to ensure children are punctual in their arrival. This includes tackling the causes of lateness and seeing how we can help address them.
What if my child arrives after 9.15am?
Your child is marked as absent for the whole morning session and the absence is unauthorised. This can result in penalty notices being issued by the Local Authority.
