Pupil Attendance

It is essential for your child to have outstanding attendance throughout the school year. We know that good attendance is directly linked to good academic results throughout school. Each term we celebrate those children who have achieved 100% attendance and those pupils who have reached 100% for the entire academic year. Attending school regularly plays a vital part in successful learning.

The Department for Education (DfE) has set a target of at least 96% attendance for each child and we expect every child to achieve this.  

Regular attendance is vital and is monitored and reported on according to statutory regulations.

Attendance and attainment are directly related and therefore it is essential that children should attend school every day.

If children are unwell and cannot attend school parents/carers are required to telephone the school office before 9:15am on the first day of absence. Alternatively an e-mail can be sent to the school via [email protected]
