At Whitings Hill we strongly encourage good attendance and punctuality. Classroom doors open at 8.45am to allow children enough time to put their book bags and coats away, and for parents to talk to the teacher.
If your child is not in their classroom at 8.55am they will receive a late mark. If you bring your child to school after 9.05am they will receive an unauthorised absence for the morning.
Lessons start promptly in the morning, it is vital you teach your child from an early age the importance of punctuality and attendance.
Absence from school is not encouraged and we are unable to authorise holidays. Absence will be authorised only in exceptional circumstances.
