When your child arrives late at school, they miss important events like assembly, teacher instructions and introductions. Children also feel anxious and embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late.
Frequent lateness can add up to a considerable amount of learning being lost. This can seriously disadvantage your child and disrupt the learning of others. Please help your child to be punctual.
If a child is late 10 minutes each day it equates to 7 lost teaching days across the year.
20 minutes late each day equates 70 missed lessons across the year.
Please pop into school if you would like to discuss your child’s attendance.
