Every Minute Matters



From Monday 11th September 2017

All children who arrive after 09:00 will have to be signed

into school by their responsible adult.


We believe that Every Minute Matters to our children’s education and think that one of the most important times in the school day is the registration period.


We believe that when children arrive late to school they…

  • Miss out on important instruction and information passed by class teachers at the start of the days learning.
  • Are unable to catch up and interact socially with friends and teaching staff before settling into school day.
  • Miss lesson time – usually the key explanation of the ‘how and what’ of the task that has been set.
  • Disturb and disrupt teaching - teaching staff have to repeat instructions to late children and stop teaching the children who have arrived on time

From Monday 11th September If you drop children off at school after 09:00 you must accompany them to school reception to hand them over to school staff. It is a legal responsibility that children are in school, on time every day.

The school day starts at 08:55

You must NOT leave them at the school gate and ask them to make their way into school unattended.

We understand that from time to time children are late and fully support our children’s families when this happens.
