All Saints Primary School opens at 8.45am, our registration is between 8.55am and 9.00am. If your child arrives one minute after this time they are late. If they arrive at school after 9.25am they will be given a U code which means they were absent from school for that session without authorisation. School may consider requesting that the Local Authority initiate legal proceedings against each responsible adult if a pupil is marked U excessively.
Arriving late is a way of saying that something else is more important than learning. School time is there for you and for your future, make the most of it!!!!
It is important to instil strong timekeeping skills into your children from a young age. This will help to ensure that your child is self disciplined, has good time management and is learning good patterns of behaviour for adult life.
All Saints Primary School is happy to discuss anything affecting your child's punctuality.
