Avoiding Late attendance

 Avoiding Late attendance
This week a number of children arrived after the second bell when the gates were already locked. Unfortunately this caused them to have to come into school via the Office and be late for class.
We therefore politely request that every effort is made to be in school on time. Persistent lateness is considered to be a form of absence and is monitored (in accordance with the guidelines) by the Education Welfare Officer (EWO).
We would like to remind all parents / carers and children of the times of the school day:
8.40 am - The school gates open*
8.50 am - The children come into school (as independently as possible!)
12.00 - 1.15 pm - Foundation/ Key Stage 1 lunchtime
12.15 - 1.15 pm - Key Stage 2 lunchtime
3.10 pm - the school gates open
3.20 pm - the end of the school day
*Please note that 8.40 – 8.50 am is set aside as the time Parents/Carers can enter the school to speak to teachers and make enquiries. Once the bell goes allowing the children access it creates a Health and Safety issue if adults attempt to come in at the same time and they will therefore be requested by staff not to do so. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
