Punctuality

Periodically we will be carrying out punctuality checks in school.

May I remind you that school starts at 8.50 a.m.  Please try to ensure your child is in school for the start of the lesson. 

Research has shown that the first 10 minutes of a lesson are the most important and your child is missing this every time they are late.

It is also very disruptive to the class if the teacher has to start the lesson again.

We shall be continuing our Punctuality checks and will be referring any persistent late comers to the Education Welfare Service.

Thank you for co-operating in this matter.

Holidays During Term Time

The Department of Education has amended their policy regarding holiday requests during term time.  The law gives no entitlement to parents to take their child on holiday in term time.

Parents taking their child on holiday without consent will receive a Penalty Notice from the Local Authority.  Children could also be taken off the school roll which would mean they would not have a place at this school on their return from holiday.

Children absent during term time miss learning and need to catch up on missed work which poses a potential risk of under achievement.

Please support and understand this decision from the Government.

Family holidays without permission are unauthorised absences.
