Kirkby CE Primary School is committed to maximising the potential of every child and good attendance and punctuality are essential to this aim.
We would ask that you ensure that your child is on the yard by 08.50am(KS1 and Reception) 08.55am(key stage 2) when the school morning starts. Registers are closed 30 minutes after the children are due in, so if your child arrives late after 09.20am (KS1) 09.25am(KS2), they receive and unauthorised absence and will lose their mark for that session.
Every half term school has a reward for children who are on time every day. You have to be in on time to be in with a chance of winning.
Next half term school will be monitoring punctuality closely. A member of the Local Authority Attendance team will be meeting with parents whose punctuality continues to be a concern.
They will also be doing ‘Late on the Gate’ spot check over the coming weeks.
Lastly, I would like to ask that if your child has any worries about any aspect of school life, please do not hesitate to get in touch. By working together, we can ensure that your child is happy in school.
Thank you very much in anticipation of your help.
