Absence and Attendance


Attendance Policy

For a child to reach their full educational achievement a high level of school attendance is essential.


We are committed to providing an education of the highest quality for all our pupils and endeavour to provide an environment where all pupils feel valued and welcome.  Parents/carers and pupils play a part in making our school so successful.  Every child has a right to access the education to which he/she is entitled.  Parents/carers and teachers share the responsibility for supporting and promoting excellent school attendance and punctuality for all.


It is our duty to consistently strive to achieve a goal of 100% attendance for all children.  Every opportunity will be used to convey to pupils and their parents/carers the importance of regular and punctual attendance.


For our children to take full advantage of the educational opportunities offered it is vital they are at school, on time, every day the school is open unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable.  The routines children develop around attendance and punctuality at school are the same as the expectations of any future employer in the world of work.  High attainment, confidence with peers and staff and future aspirations depend on good attendance.
