Lionel Primary School

Working together to provide an educational environment that inspires, challenges and nurtures each child.

Attendance

Attendance & Punctuality

 

School begins with a soft start from 8.40am to 8.55am.

Year 5 and 6 children who have permission to walk home alone are dismissed at 3.30pm.  All other children can be collected from their classroom door at 3:30pm.  

 

To make our school outstanding you can help by making sure your child comes to school every day and arrives on time.

If your child arrives after the bell rings at 8:55am please bring them to the reception so that they can be registered before they go to their classroom. 

 

If your child/ren are unable to attend school please call the Reception desk on 0208 560 5323 to report the absence or alternatively you can report the absence via Parent Mail.

 

 

 

TOGETHER WE CAN DO IT!

 

Help to give your child the best start in life. A very good way to support your child is to make sure he/she comes to school every day.

 

Missing days means gaps in learning which seriously affects progress.

It is a legal duty to send your children to school every day and we ask you to commit to this.

 

 

High attendance leads to higher achievement and ensures your child’s well-being, setting up positive habits for future studies and working life.

Start as you mean to go on!

Lateness

School time is too valuable to miss!

 

When a child is late for school he or she may feel:

 

      Confused               Upset            Embarrassed           Angry           Left Out 

Anxious               Scared               

                                                                                 

Punctuality is important throughout life – this is one of the basic expectations in our professional lives.

It is unacceptable to be late due to oversleeping or general traffic.

Being late can mean missing the vital introduction to a lesson.

 

At Lionel Primary School lessons begin  at 8.55 a.m. every school day.
