Registration and Late Arrival

Please ensure that your child arrives at the Academy promptly.  The first part of the day is very important as the teacher often explains the day’s learning at this time.  Registration take place at 9:00am and 12:30pm for EYFS/KS1 and 1:30pm for KS2. Any child arriving after these times will be marked as late.  Please escort your child to the Academy if you are running late for any reason and inform the office staff of their arrival.  It is better to come late than not to come at all.  Any arrival after 10:10am or 2:20pm will be recorded as an unauthorised absence unless a satisfactory reason is forthcoming.
