Attendance

It is obviously very important that children attend school regularly. We look forward to working in partnership with you to support your children’s learning and their individual needs to help them achieve their potential.

We are required to keep and monitor records of attendance, absence and lateness and the details are submitted to the Local Authority (LA). When children are away from school please telephone us before 8.45am on each day of absence. Wherever possible, medical appointments should be made outside of the school day

Why is regular school attendance so important for my child?

Regular attendance at school means that your child can make the most of their education, improving their chances in adult life. School can also help your child’s social skills such as making and developing friendships. A regular and punctual attendance pattern will help your child when they enter the world of work. The link between attendance and attainment in school is clear. The more a pupil is in the school the more they increase their opportunity to fulfil their potential.

In particular, we need to stress how important it is that you don’t take holidays in term time as it disrupts your child’s learning.

Does your child have high attendance levels?  Attendance also includes late arrivals or early departures.  These all have a significant effect on your child's learning.  

School starts at 8.55am.  Children can be brought in to school from 8.45am.
