PUNCTUALITY

Do you know that children who arrive a few minutes late start the day feeling more stressed and do not make a positive start to their learning? They often miss out on key messages and education. It disrupts the education of the rest of the class.

 

Being late to school has a significant impact on the amount of learning time lost over a school year.

The table gives you an indication of how much time is lost if regularly late.
