Punctuality

As a school we have a responsibility to ensure all our children attend the academy on time every day.

 

What time does the academy start?

 

Our doors open for the children at 8.45 am and they are welcome to join their teachers at that time. School starts officially at 8.45 am when the bell is rung in the playground. Registers close at 9.00am.

 

What if my child is late?

 

All children who arrive after 9.00am will be asked to sign in at the main reception. You will be asked to give a reason why they are late. If your child has difficulties with writing we will ask you to complete it with them.

 

Why do we do this?

 

As an academy we have a duty to ensure children are punctual in their arrival. This includes tackling the causes of lateness and seeing how we can help address them.

 

What if my child arrives after 9.20am?

 

Your child is marked as absent for the whole morning session and the absence is unauthorised. This can result in fixed penalty notices being issued by the Local Authority.

 

Every minute counts ……

  • Know your child’s routines for the school day to avoid issues, for example, have they got their PE kit?
  • Help your child get everything ready the night before e.g. uniform, reading books, homework.
  • Establish a good bedtime routine, so your child can sleep well which will make mornings less of a struggle!

 

If your child is late every day for a year, your child would lose the following days of education:

10 minutes 6.5 days
