REMINDER – LATENESS
All pupils are responsible for getting to school on time as lateness undermines good quality learning and teaching. Pupils who are late are reminded that they must attend a breaktime detention in the Assembly Hall. Failure to attend breaktime detention is being monitored and will result in further sanctions being imposed.
