Attendance, Punctuality and School Opening Hours


School attendance is incredibly important at Eccleston Lane Ends. Our attendance target for this year is: 


Well done to all of our families! We hit our attendance target of 96% for 2022-23! We are really proud of this fact and of all of our children who achieved 100% attendance for this academic year - an amazing achievement!

Doors open for all classes at 8:40am (external gates will be open from 8:30am - please do not arrive earlier than this as it is unsafe to have children on site, unsupervised.)

Lessons will begin promptly and registers will close at 8:55am - if you arrive after this time you will be marked late. 

The school day finishes for all classes at 3:15pm

In a typical week this totals 32.5 hours for all year groups. 

Rewards for great attendance

The class who have the highest attendance in EYFS/Key Stage 1 win additional playtime! The class in KS2 who have the highest attendance in KS2 go into dinner first on a Friday! Figures will be published each week.
