Please inform the school if a different adult is collecting your child.

What happens if my child is late?

If your child arrives after the rest of their class has gone inside with their teacher, they will need to register at the school office. This is really important so that we have a record that your child is in the building!

When registering at the school office, your child will order their school dinner. You will need to sign them in, giving a reason for being late. We understand that, at times, everyone can be late due to unavoidable circumstances. For persistent lateness you may be contacted by the school and called to a meeting with our attendance team.
