Attendance and Punctuality

Attendance | Punctuality

Article 3
The best interests of the child must be top priority in all actions concerning children.

Article 28
Every child has the right to an education.

We expect all children to "Arrive before 9, arrive on time" for school.

We open all the classroom doors at ten to nine, so that children can come in and organise their coats and bags and get to work! Many children are already getting on with a variety of jobs independently by the time the register is taken at 9.00am.

The register is a legal document and any child arrrivng after it has closed is late and must be recorded as such by law. Information on punctuality is collected electronically for every child, overnight, by the local authority.

The Local Authority will issue penalty notices to parents who allow their children to arrive late regularly.
