Attendance Policy

Good attendance at school is essential for a pupils’ education and establishes a positive working ethos early in life. 100% attendance is certainly possible, but in the event of your child being away from school it is essential that you, the parent inform the school of the reasons for absence.

There is a clear connection between regular attendance and achievement. As attendance deteriorates, so does performance, achievement, friendship circles and self-esteem.

School Practice

In line with the Government and Local Authority guidelines

  • Registers are taken twice daily: in the morning and in the afternoon.
  • Parents, guardians or carers should always telephone the school office before 9.30am if their child will not be attending school.
  • First day calls are made by the School Office if the school has been given no prior notification of a pupil’s absence.
  • Staff will bring to the attention of the Headteacher those pupils who are seen to be developing a pattern of absence.
