Punctuality is an important part of your child’s routine; it is crucial for you and your child to understand that arriving late to school impacts learning for your child and their peers. Establishing a good routine will prepare your child for secondary education. We can offer you support and guidance if you are experiencing difficulties please contact school and we will be happy to offer our support.
