Late arrival at school

When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late.

Minutes late per day during the school year = Equals days' worth of teaching lost in a year

5 minutes = 3 days

10 minutes = 6 1/2 days

15 minutes = 10 days

20 minutes = 13 days

30 minutes = 19 days

Frequent lateness can add up to a considerable amount of learning lost, and can seriously disadvantage your child. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
