Fantastic ! Lets try to continue that through the Summer Term
The school day begins at 8:55am and pupils should be ready for lessons to commence at 9:00am Punctuality is a life skill that should be encouraged.
Since returning to school in September 88 Hours and 7Mins of teaching time has been lost through children being late for school. This has a huge impact not only on the child who is late but also on the class as the teacher has to stop the learning to enable the late child to catch up. Please make every effort to get your child/ren to school on time.
At Graig Y Rhacca Primary and Nursery Community School the doors open at 8:55am for the start of the school day registration and assembly take place after 9am. There have been quite a few children late for school recently which has a negative impact on the class, your children and school.
Parent/carers are reminded that The Local Authority may issue a FPN for persistent lateness after the close of register in accordance with the local code of conduct, if in excess of 10 sessions in a term.
During the Autumn Term 34hrs and 2minutes of teaching time was lost through children being late. This Term so far 24hrs and 8min have been lost, this is not only disruptive to the children who are late but also to the rest of the class when the teacher has to repeat what has already been discussed. Please try to arrive at school on time.
Attendance Target this Academic Year
We continue to strive for excellent attendance and this year we have agreed our target with the Local Authority as 94%. Please ensure that your child is in school at 8.50am (or 8.10am if attending Breakfast Club) for a prompt start to the day at 8.55am. If your child is unwell, please contact us by 9.30am to inform us of the absence.
Please see our school Attendance policy (below) for all attendance information and guidance.
If you require any help with attendance, please contact Mrs. Lewis in school who will be happy to support.
