Am I too late? Has the meeting at school now happened? If not, show them this post! And tell them, as calmly as you can, what you have told us in this post. If they interrupt you while you are explaining, ask them to, politely, to wait until you have finished speaking. And the same rules apply to you; do not interupt them until they have finished speaking.

Suggest that you ask them how to monitor your son's presence and the arrival of the bus. Should he call into the reception office to log his attendance? If not, how should he do this? A clear and easy way for your son to register his attendance should be open to him, esp when the bus is late. 

Ask that another meeting date be arranged at the meeting so that you and the school can feedback about the success or failure of this new regime. 

Best of luck, JoJo - I hope you get a decent response.

Ask if form/class registers are also taken. If they are ask to see the class register entries for the same 11 absence dates the school say your son missed. 

Most schools have electronic entry, when he entered school late, ask why school did not ask your son to sign in  

i would suggest you ensure a paper trail from here on. When you contact the school email, to confirm your phone calls, and save your emails to a folder. Also if school phone you ask for an email to confirm the conversation. Save these mails too. 

Ask what the procedure is for late arrival. Make sure your son follows it in the future. 

these people should give you some good advice
