Lateness Procedures

Lateness to school or lessons will not be tolerated 

All boys are expected to wear a watch. 

Morning Procedures

  • All students are expected to be on the school site by 8.35am.
  • All students should be in registration by 8.40am.
  • A student is considered late if they have not been registered by 8.45am.
  • Any student who is late to school on 3 occasions in a half term will receive a C3 detention.
  • Any student who is late to school on 7 occasions in a half term will be given a C5 detention. In this instance parents may be invited into school.
  • Lateness is monitored by HOYs and the Pastoral support Worker, Mrs Bailey.

Afternoon Procedures

  • All students are expected to be in registration by 1.40pm.
  • Lateness to afternoon registration will be treated with the same procedures as morning registration.

Lesson Procedures

  • All students are expected to arrive at lessons no later than 5 mins after the previous lesson finishes.

(If the whole class is late for good reason then the teacher will use their discretion. If most of the class have managed to get to the lesson on time and one or more students come in significantly after the rest then it will be assumed that those students have deliberately gone astray between lessons.)

  • At the end of a lesson a bell sounds.  5 mins later another bell sounds.  This is notifying staff when a student should be marked late.
  • Students who are late to a lesson will be issued with a C2 resulting in a private detention.
    • Students who are persistently late to lessons will be issued with a C3 detention.

Students who are consistently late to school and/or lessons will be withdrawn from opportunities to attend School Trips, Reward Trips, Sports Involvement and Special Events such as Yr 11 Prom.
