Attendance 2

We expect at least 96% attendance by all children in our school.

High attendance is important in giving children the best chance of being successful at school and achieving their end of year expectations or better.

What to do if your child cannot attend school

Please contact the school office on the first day of absence before 9.30am on 01782 234676.

Please explain the reason for absence and give an estimate of how long your child is likely to be absent. If you have not informed the school office of your child’s absence by 9.30am on the first day of absence a text message or phone call will be made.

High attending children are able to get involved in the entire range of school life and all the different activities that are on offer in order to ensure they reach their full potential.

High attending children are able to develop:

  • high levels of achievement in their work.
  • better social skills.
  • better friendship skills.

High attendance is particularly important:

  • At the start of the school year when establishing new routines.
  • Throughout the year when valuable teaching and group work is taking place that cannot be repeated.
  • At the end the school year when making the transition to the nest year group or secondary school.
