The school attendance policy (available to view in Key Information) states that the attendance of children who arrive late will be registered as follows:
o A child arriving after the register has started but before the register has closed will be coded as “late” (code L).
o A child arriving after the register has closed will be coded as “Late after registration closed” (code U). This is counted as an “Unauthorized Absence” (see appendix for use of other codes).
o The times from which children will be marked as “late” or “ late after registration closed” will be clearly communicated to parents.
