Attendance at Cheadle Catholic Infant School


School Day:

All pupils are expected to be at school by 8:50am ready for the start of the day at 8.55am. Registers will be taken at 9.10am. If a child arrives after 9.10am they will be marked present but arriving late.

Classroom doors will be locked at 9.10am. Parents of pupils arriving after 9:10am must report to the office to provide a reason for their child’s lateness. The register will close at 9.30am – pupils arriving after this time will be marked as an unauthorised absence (U code) for the morning session.


Arriving late by just a few minutes each day can have a big impact on achievement. It also causes disruption for your child, the teacher and the other children in the class.
