Attendance and Punctuality

Punctuality Procedures

Update: September 2018...


We are pleased to see that your children are settling in well. Thank you to parents and carers who have been ensuring that their children have arrived in the line by 5 to 9. This means that they are not missing out on a moment of learning. Gates open at 8.45.


We aim to ensure that when your children are in school that we are using all time effectively. This is why we ask that your children are in the line by 5 to 9 as lessons begin promptly at 9am.


This year one of our priorities will be to improve punctuality across school in the mornings therefore all children that are in the line by 5 to 9 will be given stickers. This is to show all staff that they are beginning their day positively so that we can praise them for this. Children not in the line will then be monitored. A log will be kept of the children whose punctuality is consistently poor. You will then be informed of further actions if this continues.


We will also be looking closely at after school late pick ups. School finishes at 3.30pm. Children should be picked up from their classes at this time. Children will be taken to late class at 3.40pm and this will be logged. We will be monitoring those children who are not collected on time. Please ensure that you call the office before 3pm if you are going to be late collecting your children so we can inform the class teacher.
