Attendance

Regular attendance is expected from all children unless they are ill. Our Attendance Officer monitors school attendance closely.

Of course there may be times when your child has to miss school because he or she is ill. This is to be expected and for the odd day off sick you should inform school by 9.30 am on the first day of absence. If you do not call school to notify an absence, we will call you.

Children may also have to attend a medical or dental appointment in school time. However, you should try to make routine appointments such as dental check-ups during the school holidays or after school hours. If this is unavoidable please let the school know you intend to collect a child for an appointment and when you are likely to bring them back. Your child should not need to miss the whole day because of a medical appointment.

We recognise and reward the good attendance of both individual pupils and classes with certificates, stickers and trophies.

 

School has worked closely with families and highlighted and celebrated the importance of regular attendance.                                                                        Ofsted Report October 2012
