As you know, all Staff at Townlands CofE Primary Academy are committed to ensuring that each of our children gets the best possible start to life.  One way we can do this is through ensuring regular school attendance.  Evidence shows that children who attend school regularly are more successful, not only in school, but in all areas of life.  We hope that you will continue to support us in improving our school attendance by making sure the children are here every day to learn and achieve.

 

Lateness

Did you know that being 15 minutes late each day is the same as missing two weeks of school over the year.  Lateness is just a serious as non attendance and could also lead to a Fixed Penalty Notice.  The start of the school day is an important time for children to develope their social skills with their peers, as well as preparing them for their learning. We start teaching at 8.55am and 'late children miss out on vital skills such as phonics and /or basic number work.
