It is important that your child attends school every day. Good school attendance gives your child the best opportunity for success and helps develop skills for life. Your child should attend school every day unless there is an unavoidable cause such as illness. It also important that your child comes to school on time as missing lessons due to lateness can impact negatively on your child’s progress.
If your child is unable to attend school due to sickness or a family emergency, please ensure that you contact the school as early as possible on the day. If the school has not heard from a parent/carer by 10.00am, we will contact you to confirm your child’s absence. It is up to the school to decide whether an absence is authorised or not. Schools and local authorities will be notified of all attendance on a weekly basis.
Good school attendance and punctuality is recognised every week with a weekly prize draw for all students who have 100% attendance. Students also receive certificates and vouchers half termly and termly for 100% attendance and punctuality and for improved attendance. Students with 100% attendance for the whole of the school year will be invited on special trips to celebrate their success.
