Supervision is provided from 8.40am from which time children can begin arriving at school in preparation for the start of the school day which begins promptly at 8.50am. Children in Oak class should be brought to their classroom on arrival where their class teacher will greet them. Ash and Beech class children should say goodbye to their parents on the playground and make their way into school via the playground door. All other pupils in Years 3 to 6 are able to come into school from 8.40am. Any child arriving after 8.50am should report to the school office, where they will be signed in and a late mark will apply. Children arriving after registration closes at 9.15am will have their lateness marked as unauthorised.

At the end of the day children in Oak Class will not be released until collected from the classroom by their parent, carer or named responsible adult. Children in Ash and Beech classes will be escorted onto the playground by their teacher and handed over to their parent, carer or named responsible adult.


Our New Attendance Initiative

Pupils 'sign in' when they get to school so that we can keep track of punctuality. 'Morning Activities' take place before the register, this is a crucial time for your child and their learning. Pupils will be awarded with a Gold Sticker for their It's Good to be Green sticker charts if they arrive on time for ten days in a row.

Parents need to be aware that persistent lateness may result in a referral to the Attendance Service who may take further action including the issue of a penalty notice.

It is important that children are not late for school. Late arrival in the classroom disrupts lessons and can be upsetting for your child.
