Ullesthorpe Church of England Primary School

Late/Absence Procedures

At Ullesthorpe CE Primary School, we value parental support with children's attendance and punctuality.


The children can come into school from 8.45am each day but should all be seated and ready to start their first task by 8.55am every day. Any child arriving after this time should go directly to the office and will be marked as late in the register. Please note that gates will be locked at 8.55am and access will be through the main pedestrian gate using the buzzer. Any lates will be recorded by the office. If children are late for school, they often miss out on important work and instructions for the day. Our Education Welfare Officer closely monitors punctuality as well as attendance.
