Punctuality

 

Sometimes circumstances beyond our control mean that we are late. This is a fact of life and we accept this. However, persistent lateness can and should be avoided.

 

If your child arrives at school late it is important that you bring them to Reception. We can then record that they have arrived in school and take them to join their class.

 

If you are going to be late collecting your child please try to let us know -- arriving even just a few minutes late can be very distressing to small children. Thank you.
