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.
