Attendance and Punctuality

100% The target for everyone.
Over 97% = 5 days absence (or less) in one year. Very good attendance.
Below 97% Your child’s chances of good grades are in danger. Support is available if you are ill for long periods. We can help.
Below 90% = more than 4 school weeks off school. This is called “Persistent Absence”. Your child’s chance of good grades is negatively affected.

Punctuality

Why should I arrive for school on time?

It is important that children arrive in school on time everyday for a number of reasons.

  • It is the legal responsibility of parent/carers to ensure that children attend their registered school on time each day.
  • If a child is late they miss important information about the days activities.
  • A child that is late will miss school work.
  • Children that arrive in good time for registration are able to talk to their friends before school and settle into the school day with them.
  • A child that is late disrupts staff and other children.

The table below shows how lateness can add up over the school year:

Lateness = lost learning!

minutes late each day 3 days lost!
10 minutes late each day 6.5 days lost!
15 minutes late each day 10 days lost!
20 minutes late each day 13 days lost!
30 minutes late each day 19 days lost!
  • days are school days and calculated over a school year

Our school day starts at 8.50am and pupils can come into school from 8.40am.

If there is a particular reason why you are finding it difficult to arrive in school on time please talk to us.
