Attendance at school is vital for all children, not only for academic reasons but also for the social skills they develop mixing with a variety of their peers and adults and the experiences offered to them beyond the curriculum.
It is important your child attends school regularly and on time. We appreciate illnesses cannot be helped, but holidays in term time are not beneficial to the academic achievement of your child.
Arriving late (after 9am) to school means your child is classed absent for a morning and this negatively impacts on their attendance. We monitor attendance weekly. Class attendance is celebrated in our Golden Time Assembly. Children falling below 95% attendance are classed as persistent absentees and this can result in the involvement of the school inclusion team, fines for parents and, in the worse case scenarios, parental custodial sentences.
Weekly we send a text to the parents of those children who fall below 95% for the term to date to advise them of this and that their child is being monitored.
Half termly you receive a letter advising you of your child's attendance for that half term and the possible consequences of low attendance continuing, or congratulating you and your child on their good attendance.
