Lateness to School

As you know, many of our children have lost a lot of learning time because of lock down. This issue is being compounded for some of our children because they are regularly late. Did you know,arriving 10 minutes late everyday means that 33 hours of learning is lost each year. This is the same as missing 2 weeks of school!

I monitor attendance and lateness. There are an increasing number of children arriving late everyday. Not only is this having a significant impact on the children who are late but also on their classmates because their teachers needs to re-explain learning to the latecomers, meaning they have less time for the other children in class.

Lateness can be avoided. Please ensure you arrive on time everyday, both for your children and their friends.

Thank you

Mrs Harding
