Lateness Procedures

Parents/carers are asked for their help in ensuring that young people arrive at school on time. 
 
Arriving on time for school is essential in ensuring that the work of the school continues effectively and that pupils derive maximum benefit from their time at school. Acquiring good habits of timekeeping will also help young people in many aspects of life outwith school, particularly in the job market.  Employers nearly always ask about patterns of timekeeping when seeking references for potential employees.
 
We monitor timekeeping very closely and will discuss lateness with pupils if it falls below a satisfactory level. Please see below for an explanation of the graduated systems that are put in place to deal with latecoming, systems that seek to encourage good timekeeping and which involve parents at every step so that a partnership approach to resolving issues is adopted.
 
 
Procedures for dealing with morning lateness
 
1.   In each major school term, pupils will receive verbal warnings about lateness for up to a maximum of 5 occasions without further procedural, formal action being taken.   However, a groupcall will be sent to record each instance of latecoming.
 
2.      Pastoral staff will receive weekly late-coming data. Pastoral staff will act on this information and will reinforce with individual pupils the importance of good time-keeping.
 
3.    On the 6th instance of latecoming, parents/carers will receive notification by letter, signed by the Pastoral Head,
 
4.    Should there be further evidence that the pupil has not addressed timekeeping, parents/carers will receive notification by letter, signed by the Pastoral Head or the Depute Headteacher. This will trigger a conversation, either in person or by ‘phone, with parents/carers to alert them to this situation.
 
5.   Should matters not be resolved by this stage, it may be necessary to trigger more formal mechanisms, including the possibility of parents/carers being requested to attend an Attendance Panel meeting. This is a formal meeting, required by law, and is chaired by someone from outwith the school.
 
It goes without saying that we would wish to avoid the more serious consequences of continued latecoming. Your assistance in encouraging your son/daughter to be in school on time is appreciated.
