Absence and Late Procedures

Teachers Say

Children who arrive late can feel embarrassed, left out and miss out on importance introductions to lessons. Being on time is an essential life skill that needs to be taught from the very beginning.

 

Children Say

"I don't like walking into class when the lesson has already started and it's all quiet. Everyone looks at me and I feel awkward.

Research Says

The impact of non-attendance at school and nursery significantly increases gaps in knowledge and understanding for children. Research has shown that this has a huge impact on their attainment, achievement and future life choices.

Research also shows

That in being late children miss out on important learning which could affect their achievement. They don't have the social time to settle into class and it can be embarrassing for them. They may also disrupt the learning of other children.
