St Barnabas

& St Paul's Church of England Primary School



School starts at 8:35am - Arrive on time every day. 


It is very important that all children arrive to school at 8:35 am every day.  This is when the school doors open.  As soon as the children enter school, they complete 'Morning Work' so it is crucial they are in school, on time and ready to learn.  

The school gates close at 8:45am. If your child arrives after 8:45am they are late and will not be able to come into school via their usual morning entrance. You should make your way to the main school entrance with your child where a member of the Inclusion Team will greet you and mark your child’s attendance.

Please note that if your child arrives to school later than 9.30am, we are required to mark them as ‘unathorised absence.’.

If your child is regularly late, you will be asked to attend a meeting to discuss how punctuality can be improved.
