Excellent attendance and being at school on time is crucial to success. We encourage every child to aim for 100% attendance to maximise their learning opportunities and help them to achieve their full potential.
Evidence shows that pupils who have excellent attendance achieve more, and make better progress – both academically and socially. We work closely with parents to support them in helping their child to understand the importance of good attendance – laying the foundations for future success at secondary school and beyond to the work place.
Pupil attendance is closely monitored, and unexplained absence will be followed up. This includes where pupils fall below our minimum attendance expectation rate of 95%. Parents are asked to follow the procedure below in case of unavoidable absence, including for medical reasons. We also ask parents to contact us if there are any issues that may impact on their child’s ability to attend, so that we can provide help and support with this, including making adjustments so that pupils are able to attend.
If you need support with your child's attendance, please contact the school and we will support you the best we can.
