Learning is the formation and development of neural pathways in the brain.
If a new neural pathway isn't used within 24 hours, it is reabsorbed into the body and the skill has to be learnt again.
If there are gaps in attendance, there will be gaps in learning as vital connections between pathways will be missed.
Your child's learning journey is carefully planned so that these connections can be made every day for 190 days a year.
5 minutes late a day equates to 3 days out of 190 lost each academic year.
10 minutes late is 6.5 days lost.
15 minutes late is 10 days of education lost.
Being late can lead to anxiety and feeling unsettled. Arriving after registration may also result in an unauthorised absence.
