Attendance and illness
Attendance and Punctuality
We have been celebrating pupils whose attendance has been exemplary - and have some exciting plans for rewarding our very best attendees in this section soon.
As a school, we want:
Our pupils to be in school and learning every day
Our whole school attendance percentage to be at least 97%
To be given a reason for any pupil absence
Families to take holidays within the school holiday periods
Unauthorised absence to be minimal
Our children to arrive on time for school.
Why is attendance important?
Your child’s education is very important. Regular school attendance will help them fulfil their potential and ensure they have a brighter future. Going to school every day will help your child learn, develop and achieve. It will build confidence, friendship and ambition. The more your child is in school the more likely they are to succeed at exams and at life.
We understand that there will be days when your child is too ill to attend school and we ask that if your child is unwell that you try to telephone the school before 9.30 on the first morning of absence. We operate a 'Safe child policy': if a child is absent and we have not been notified, we will contact you by text or telephone
