Expectations and Daily Routines
Our school starts at 8.55am and we expect all children to be in class by this time. Registers are marked at 9.00am and close at 9.15am.
Your child will receive an unauthorised late mark if they arrive after the register is closed. Your child will be given a ‘U’ code (unauthorised late) in line with regulations, and this may mean that you face legal action if they persist.
When your child is late, they miss the start of the day, they can miss work, and this will impact on their learning. Late arrivals also disrupt lessons for other pupils in the class, which is not fair on them or your child.
If your child has a persistent late record, we will communicate our concerns via a ‘lates letter’ and then you will be asked to meet with us to resolve the problem, but you can approach us at any time if you are having problems getting your child to school on time.
