Punctuality and Appointments
Gleadless has an excellent punctuality record with children being welcomed through the gates by staff from 8.30 am. Doors are open into classrooms from 8.35 am and parents are warmly welcomed into school with their child. The official start time is 8.50 am when the registers are taken and from 9am the main gates are closed and your child will incur a late mark if they have not arrived in school. Access will be via the intercom system on Frith road after 9am and children will register with the office.
If on the rare occasion your child has a medical appointment that has to be taken during the school day, we request a medical appointment card or letter and encourage you to bring your child to school at either side of the appointment time. A child leaving school ill during the day will be issued with an exit pass from the office.
