 Attendance Matters

To show how important we think good attendance is, we congratulate our children by presenting a termly certificate for 100% attendance. A weekly class certificate is awarded and each term the class with the best attendance receives a reward.

You can help us by:

  • Telephoning school before 9.30am to let us know the reason for your child's absence;
  • Only taking your child out of school for the minimum amount of time for a medical appointment - please bring them back to school after the appointment together with proof of the medical appointment if possible;
  • Only allowing your child to be absent from school due to exceptional circumstances. Please ensure you inform us.

Please refer to our 'Attendance Policy' below.

Punctuality

We believe good attendance and a prompt start to the day are very important in order to make sure that your child gets the education they deserve.

  • Your child will be expected to at school promptly as legal registration takes place at 8.50am.
  • Please note if your child arrives after 8.50am they will be marked as late in the register.
  • If your child arrives after the legal registration has closed (i.e. after 9.15am) this will be recorded as an unauthorised absence.

Attendance Below 96%

This is the procedure we follow when your child's attendance falls below 96%:

Step 1: Parents/Carers made aware of attendance concerns.
  • Attendance shows no sign of improvement and remains below 96%.
Step 2: Parents/Carers invited to a meeting at School with the Assistant Principal for Attendance, Behaviour & Extended Schools.
  • Attendance continues to be a concern with no significant improvement.
Step 3: Parents/Carers requested to attend a School Attendance Meeting with the Academy Attendance Leader and the Assistant Principal for Attendance, Behaviour & Extended Schools to agree and sign an action plan.
Step 4: Attendance fails to significantly improve. Legal intervention considered.
