Bromet Primary School Excellence, Enjoyment and Achievement for All




Lateness and truancy

Good attendance doesn’t just involve being present in school – it also involves punctuality. You also have a responsibility to ensure that your child arrives at school on time, and stays in school during the day.

All pupils are expected to be in their classrooms at 8:45am  every day. If pupils are not in their classrooms by 8.50am, they receive a late mark – this is an unauthorised absence.

If the school believes a pupil is truanting, immediate action will be taken – this can escalate to penalty notices.

How can I help?

You can help in many ways:

  • Encourage good attendance by making sure your child goes to school. regularly.
  • Make sure your child understands that you do not approve of absence from school.
  • Support our school in our efforts to control inappropriate behaviour.
  • Inform us on the first day of your child’s absence, and keep us updated throughout the absence period.
  • Cooperate with our school to make sure your child overcomes any attendance problems.
  • Discuss planned absences with the headteacher and apply for permission well in advance.
  • Only take your child out of school during term time where the absence has been authorised.
