|6 days||Above 97% - very good|
|10 days||95% - good|
|19 days||90% - unsatisfactory|
|29 days||85% - serious cause for concern|
Punctuality and why it matters
It is a parent's responsibility to ensure their child arrives to school on time. A child who arrives late may seriously disrupt not only his/her continuity of learning but also that of others. Please note that if your child arrives to school any later than 8:50am, they should not try to enter through the cloakroom doors but instead should enter via the main reception doors with a parent/carer so they may provide a reason for their late arrival.
|Minutes late per day:||Equivalent of missing:|
|5 minutes||3.5 school days each year|
|10 minutes||7 school days each year|
|15 minutes||10.5 school days each year|
|20 minutes||14 school days each year|
