Being on time is very important to your child’s education and welfare. Learning starts at 8.50am, but we open the doors to pupils at 8.40am. We would encourage pupils to be in the school playground from 8.40am, when a member of staff is on duty, to avoid lateness and the stresses this can bring. In conjunction with the Local Authority’s Education Welfare Officer, we closely monitor lateness and will contact you if the problem persists. However, if you are late arriving at school you must bring your child to school via the front reception office and not directly to the classroom.
