Attendance & Punctuality

 The school day timings are outlined below:

8.40am – 8.50am Tutor Time
8.50am – 10am Period 1
10am – 11am Period 2
11am – 11.20am Break Time
11.20am – 12.20pm Period 3
12.20pm – 1.20pm Period 4
1.20pm – 2.15pm Lunch Break
2.15pm – 3.15pm Period 5

Why is attendance at school and punctuality important?

 Because every second counts.

  • Arriving 5 minutes late every day adds up to over 3 days lost each year
  • Arriving 15 minutes late every day is the same as being absent for 2 weeks a year
  • Arriving 30 minutes late every day is the same as being absent for 19 days a year
  • 17 days missed from school each year equates to a whole GCSE grade.
  • Attendance affects learning, future earning, well being and a sense of belonging.

 90% attendance may sound good. However, this is the equivalent of missing a half day of schooling EACH WEEK. If this continues over the five years a child spends at high school, a child with 90% attendance will miss HALF A YEAR’S schooling. 

A child with 80% attendance will lose A FULL YEAR of schooling over the same period.
