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.
