Late-coming

Friday 7th June 2019

A reminder to all students and parent/carers that period one lessons begin at 8.30am each day.  My thanks to almost all our students and parent/carers who ensure they are ready to learn at 8.30am.

However, we no longer have a 10 minute Registration period at the beginning of the day and while late-coming has reduced this this week there is still room for improvement. I am seeking the support of all parent/carers to ensure that our students arrive at school ready to be in class for 8.30am. If students are 4 minutes late for class each day this amounts to 760 minutes of ‘lost learning’ across the school year.  That equates to almost half a school week.   The reality is that a student dropped off 5 minutes late won’t actually be settled into class, ready for learning, until an additional 4 or 5 minutes have passed.  In effect the ‘lost learning’ time doubles.  When each school period is 50 minutes long the impact of ‘lost learning’ on student attainment can be significant.   Please click on the link below to see the frightening statistics around ‘lost learning’.
