At La Fontaine, we believe that excellent attendance and punctuality leads to better outcomes for pupil. This is also backed up by research that shows pupils who have excellent attendance make better progress than those who do not.


It is important that you child is ready to line up at 08:25.


Attendance and Punctuality Tips!

  • Get book bags and clothes ready the night before to speed up the morning routine                  
  • Make sure your child is in bed at a reasonable time                                                                
  • Use Breakfast Club and they will always be on time!                    
  • Let your child’s teacher know if you or they are having problems getting up for school                          
  • Make routine appointments (e.g. dentist, etc.) during the holidays or after school
