Lateness Procedures

It is better to be late than not to arrive at all.  However, when children arrive late it can make things difficult for everyone. The teacher has to stop and ensure a newcomer is up-to-speed and settle them in, therefore the rest of the class is disrupted. The latecomer misses the first part of the lesson and will miss out on important learning. Children also feel uncomfortable and embarrassed by being late.
That said, we recognise that there will be occasions where lateness is unavoidable.  In the event of this occurring, please report to the school office with your child, to ensure that they are signed in.
