Attendance

As a parent you are legally responsible for making sure your child attends school regularly.

 

It is important that you and your child develop a positive attitude to school attendance and punctuality so that they do not miss out on the opportunities at school. These qualities of reliability are also important in adult life. 

 

Poor attendance disrupts a child’s education. This causes a lack of continuity and progression in school work and can establish patterns of behaviour which may lead to long-term truancy.

 

It is our aim to ensure that absence from school only occurs when children have a genuine reason.

 

Each year we set attendance targets.
