School Times

At Moorings Way we believe that Every Minute Matters and we ensure that our school day provides children with every opportunity to learn and to develop their emotional and social skills.

Please note that registration closes at 9.15am.  This means that if your child arrives after the class doors have been locked at 9.00am but before 9.15am they will be marked as ‘Late’.  If they arrive at any time during the morning session after 9.15am, they will receive a ‘U’ mark, which is an unauthorised absence.  When a pupil has at least 10 sessions (5 school days) recorded as unauthorised absence, a penalty notice may be issued.
