Every Day Counts

Good attendance is important to us to ensure our pupils are safe, healthy and successful. We aim to ensure that all children attend school regularly and on time to ensure that they are able to make the most of the educational experiences offered at William Austin Junior School.

Punctuality – Every minute counts!

Please ensure your children arrive to school on time. Our school doors open at 8:40am. The morning register is taken at 8:48am and the registration period closes at 8:55am. Pupils arriving after 8:55am must report to the School Office so that their attendance can be recorded as ‘late’.

Lateness is monitored. Action to address lateness will be taken in line with the school’s strategy to improve punctuality. This will be either a phone call to parents/carers to find out the reason for the lateness or a home visit by the Family Workers or Education Welfare Officer.
