Attendance and Punctuality

Attending school regularly and on time is the key to your child doing well at school.

Remember every lesson counts!

It is important that your child gets to school ready for the start of the day. Doors open at 8.35 and close at 8.40 Regularly arriving late to school does have an impact on your child. As well as missing important classroom activities, children who arrive late often feel uncomfortable walking into the classroom after the school day has started.

10 minutes late each day = nearly 1 week missed each year.

Regular lateness also gives your child the impression that not being punctual is acceptable which is not a good lesson for life. Try to get into a good routine in the morning so that you can get to school on time. Mrs McEwan (our Child and Family Support Worker) can help if you have specific issues with your child.

Our school day finishes at 3.10pm
