New Information for Late Parents:

Firstly we would like to point out that there has been an improvement in the punctuality on the school gate. We are currently showing the best set of late figures that we have had for a while. The vast majority of pupils do turn up on time for school and come in calm and ready to learn.

Thank you to all those parents who are living up to the values we set as a school.

At Broadford Primary parents and carers are expected to meet three key responsibilities
  1. We will ensure that our children arrive on time for school and ready to learn:
    1. We will have provided our children with a healthy breakfast
    2. They will have warm clean clothing
    3. We will make sure they have the right equipment for school (book bag, reading record, PE kit)
  2. We will support our children’s learning at home through:
    1. Reading regularly
    2. Helping them to practise their spellings and mental maths
    3. Encouraging them in their interests
  3. We will model politeness and kindness to every one we meet

Mrs Taylor has been out every day to record parents who bring in their children after 8.55am. It is absolutely key that the pupils are in on time as learning starts promptly. Parents who are late will e given a slip that informs them of how much time is lost, just by coming in 5 minutes after the start of the day.

We will also look to give regular offenders a running update on how many minutes of learning your child has lost. This information is looked at by the Educational Welfare Officer as we are keen to ensure our parents and families are punctual.

Did you know that 5mins lateness quickly adds up...
  • 25 minutes learning lost per week 
  • 2hours 55 minutes learning lost in a half term (or three lessons) 
  • 5 hours 50 minutes learning lost per term (a whole day of learning) 
  • 1050 minutes learning lost in a year (or 3.5 days per year) 
So make sure those alarm clocks are set 5 mins earlier!
