Please note that each school day typically begins at 8:30 AM with “Tutorial/Seminar” time. While our regular class start time is 9:00 AM for 2015-2016, teachers may call students in at 8:30 AM for make-up work, special seminars and events, or a variety of other reasons. Students are expected to attend at 8:30 AM when a teacher has requested they come in early, or whenever the student is seeking additional teacher help with studies.
Britannia provides this extra tutorial time for students to access teacher help in order to better serve the needs of our students. Additionally, we are helping our families with younger siblings by scheduling regular class times to begin at 9:00 AM each day. Moreover, there is considerable research suggesting benefits to student attendance and academic achievement, with a later school start time such as this.
All Britannia students are expected to arrive in class on time and our staff will be following up on students who are late or absent. Parents and Guardians should be certain the school records clerk has accurate, up-to-date contact information so that our automated contact system regarding absences can reach the correct number or email.
Feel free to call the school administrators with any questions about our school schedule or our attendance policies. For more detailed class schedule information at Britannia, please follow the “Weekly Timetable (PDF)” link which will always be available at the top right corner of the Britannia homepage.
