Importance of Punctuality to School

 

 

Dear Parents/Carers

Re: Punctuality to school

The school, governing body, OFSTED and DFE place great store on pupils being punctual to school and to lessons.  Lack of punctuality affects learning and behaviour not only of the pupil who is late, but it has an impact on all other learners as the teacher is required to recap on missing learning for those who arrive late.  This reduces learning time for the rest of the class. As a consequence poor punctuality results in schools being given a grade 4 – unsatisfactory by OFSTED.

Punctuality is also a key workplace skill which must be learnt at school and adhered to.  Employees who are regularly late to work lose their jobs. In the work place you cannot arrive at the start time, you must be in the work place prior to the start time and ready at your desk or work station for the official start time.  This principle holds true in school.

Here at Hodge Hill College our expectation is that pupils are in their form rooms or assemblies at 8.40am.  Therefore those pupils who enter our gates at 8.40am are deemed late and as such duty staff will take their names and they will be placed in detention. 

Please support us in ensuring your child arrives on time, in correct uniform and with a pen, pencil and planner, ready to work hard.

 

Yours sincerely,
