Good attendance (over 95%) and being on time for the start of the day is crucial in ensuring children get the greatest benefit from their education.
Missed time at school can very quickly accumulate:
The register is closed at 8.50am, and children arriving after this time will be marked as late in the register. If children arrive after 9.20am, they receive an absence mark for the whole morning session.
We do appreciate that children get ill and there will be times where they are genuinely not well enough to attend, however minimising other absences is important and we are keen to work with families to ensure this.
Please use the NHS guidance to support you in making a judgement about whether your child is well enough to attend school. Is my child too ill for school?
We want to work with families to overcome any barriers to good attendance and punctuality- please do talk to us about any problems you may be experiencing.
