There were 96 lates recorded this week and sadly there were no classes where every child arrived on time. Please find below the section on lateness from our school Attendance Policy:
Being late is not acceptable. Late arriving pupils disrupt lessons and it can be embarrassing for the child and may also encourage absence.
How we manage lateness:
- Doors will be opened at 8.50 am.
- Registers are marked by 9.00 am and your child will receive a late mark if they are not in by that time.
- At 9.30 am the registers will be closed. In accordance with the regulations, if your child arrives after that time they will receive a mark that shows them to be at school, but this will not count as a present mark and it will mean they have an unauthorised absence.
- Persistent lateness will be monitored and you may be invited in to discuss it. You can approach us at any time if you are having problems getting your child to school on time.”
From now on, late arrivals will be deducted from the class attendance league table each week, so your child arriving late may effect the winning classes for the week and at the end of the year. Also, late arrival affects 100% attendance for individual children and will result in non-attendance at the Blackpool Council 100% party even if your child has attended every day.
Year 1 – 100 days of school
Our Year 1 classes will be celebrating their 100th Day of School on Monday, 11th February. To mark this special occasion, the number 100 will be the inspiration for all our lessons! We are asking children to bring something in that represents 100 eg an old t-shirt decorated with 100 patterns, a collection of 100 small objects etc. Please see our Year 1 blogs for more ideas.
If you have any concerns about your child’s internet usage, or you would like more information around E-safety, please visit the following websites:
We are also intending to hold an E-Safety information session in school for parents. If you are interested in attending please contact either office and leave your name, child’s name and what sort of time you could attend. A session will probably last for around an hour.
This new website is a one stop shop for health, social, community and childcare services information on the Fylde coast. It brings together information about a wide range of local health and council services, community clubs, social groups, childcare providers, well-being activities and events into one comprehensive source.
