As you are aware, we constantly monitor our pupil’s attendance and work with parents to ensure that
pupils receive the education and life choices they deserve. Good attendance in school is a key objective to
Good school attendance contributes to all outcomes for every child. Parents should perform their legal
duty by ensuring their children attend regularly and are punctual to their lessons. Time away from school also has a huge impact on young children socially as they may find it difficult to form strong relationships with their peers if they are often absent. It is also very difficult for them to catch up on missed work which continues while they are away.
Obviously if your child has an illness they need to be kept home but please could we ask that you adhere to
the following guidelines:
Why worry about attendance?
We strive to work with parents to improve attendance and we will write to you to make you aware of any
concerns we have if a child's attendance falls below 95% over a five week period. This monitoring will then continue until attendance/punctuality improves to a satisfactory standard.
We would ask for your on-going co-operation and if you have any concerns please do not hesitate to
contact the school for support.
