When your child arrives late at school, they miss important events like assembly, teacher instructions and lesson introductions. Children also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late.

Frequent lateness can add up to a considerable amount of learning being lost. This can seriously disadvantage your child and disrupt the learning of others. Please help your child to be punctual.

  • If a child is late 10 minutes each day it equates to 7 lost teaching days across the year
  • 20 minutes late each day equates 70 missed lessons across the year

At Keyworth Primary School we monitor lateness on an ongoing basis and inform parents if their child is regualrly late. Please pop into school if you would like to discuss your child’s attendance
