We want children to be in school so that they are able to learn. As a parent / carer, you have the legal responsibility to get your child into school on time. Our whole school target is 96% attendance throughout the year. At the end of each term, children are awarded with certificates if they achieve 100% attendance.
We are in constant contact with the Local Authority and the school attendance service. We monitor children's ongoing attendance and if concerns are identified, the Local Authority may be contacted and additional actions may be undertaken.
Parents / carers are communicated with through the process; our main aim is for children to be in school learning. Sometimes families find it difficult to get into school. Let us know, as we are here to help you!
Please See our school Attendance Policy.
