Attendance & Punctuality


At Elworth CE School we strongly encourage good attendance and punctuality. The school gates are unlocked at 8.30am to ensure children have sufficient time to line up in the correct place on the playground at 8.45am when the bell goes. 

Registration starts promptly at 8.50am.

If your child is not in their classroom at 9am, when registration closes, they will receive a late mark. 

Lessons start at 9am promptly each morning, it is vital you teach your child from an early age the importance of punctuality and attendance.

You must contact school before 9.00am to explain why your child is absent. If no contact is made, school will text or phone you on the first day they are off school to find out why they are absent.
