What happens if my child is late for school?

Should your child arrive to school after 8.40am then they will receive a "late" mark on their attendance record for morning registration. An accumulation of 2 late marks in the period of a week (Thursday to Thursday) will result in a 75 minute Friday detention with Mr Stalham.

Should your son or daughter's punctuality not improve over a period of time, your child will be placed on a Punctuality Report and a meeting with parents will be scheduled.

If your child arrives after 10am they will be marked with a "U" code showing that they arrived after the start of the first lesson. The "U" code is an unauthorised absence code and will be used unless sufficient evidence is received regarding the absence i.e. medical evidence. This code will affect your child's overall attendance percentage. Students will however be marked in for each individual lessons they attend for fire regulation purposes.
