Absences and Lateness
Absence - Any absence should be reported to the school office first thing in the morning, giving a reason for the child’s absence.
Absence is monitored by the schools attendance officer and regular or persistent absences will be discussed with parents as this is in breach of the home school agreement.
Lateness - Children who arrive after 8:55am must report to the office to sign in. They will be given a late registration slip before being taken to their classroom.
Regular or persistent lateness will be discussed with parents as late arrivals are in breach of the home school agreement and can lead to a child missing a significant amount of learning time; a child who regularly arrives 15 minutes late for school will lose over an hour of learning time each week, equating to a week of lost learning time over the course of the school year. Late arrivals also disrupt the learning time for other pupils.
