Attendance and Punctuality

  • Parents have the responsibility to ensure that their child attends school every day, and arrives on time for school each morning.
  • It is expected that all pupils will be at their respective gate at 8:45am.
  • Registers close at 9:00am.
  • Pupils who arrive after this time will be recorded as ‘Late’.
  • If pupils arrive late, they will miss an important part of the school day and this can affect their self-esteem and learning.

If you know your child will be late to school you must inform us immediately.
