All students are expected to arrive on time at school, for registration and for lessons. The school day begins at 8.30am by which time students are expected to be seated in their tutor bases (or first lesson on a Tuesday) with all necessary equipment and books for the day.
Any student arriving between 8.30am and 8.50am should go straight to their tutor room (or lesson1 on a Tuesday.) However, if arrival is after 8.50am the student needs to first visit student reception to sign in and receive a blue late slip to enable them to access their lessons. In both instances the student will be marked late. If a student arrives after 9:30 am it will be an unauthorised lateness and this will affect their attendance data.
Students who are repeatedly late will be expected to attend a detention and further sanctions will be applied if lateness continues.
We would be grateful for your support in ensuring that your child arrives to school on time.
