It is very important that learners get to school on time. This ensures that they do not miss any learning.

If a learner is likely to be late to school for genuine reasons, we would ask parents/carers to notify the
School Office so that we can ensure they are marked correctly.

Learners arriving after the registration period, without prior notification from parents/carers, will be marked
as late and may be subject to a referral.
