Lateness

Poor punctuality is not acceptable. Students with poor punctuality often have poor attendance records later in their school career.

How we manage lateness

The school day starts at 08.45am if a student arrives after this time they will receive a late mark. If they arrive later than 09.25am without a valid reason they will be marked on site, but this will count as an unauthorised absence. Students with a poor level of punctuality will be required to remain behind after school in detention to make up lost time.

A Penalty Notice could be issued if the lateness persists.
