Parents and Carers


We believe that children should come to school everyday in order to get the most out of their experience at Lathom Junior School. For this reason, we celebrate attendance and punctuality every Friday as part of our assemblies. Classes who achieve 100% attendance for a week are given a trophy to keep in their classroom until the following week.

Please note that the school will not authorise absence in any circumstance.


Lathom operates a soft start every morning: our classrooms open at 08:30 and Early Morning Work is set out for the children to complete from this time until 08:45 when the register is taken. Children arriving after this time will be marked late.

We offer a Breakfast Club every morning from 08:00 and you are welcome to drop your child off at this time.

There are a variety of successful schools in Newham for parents to consider when deciding upon secondary schools for your child.
