School Attendance

Every day counts

This school believes that good attendance is vital for all pupils if they are to gain the most from the education we provide. There are clearly documented links between regular attendance and attainment. Every member of staff will regularly check the attendance of their class and will follow up a pupil’s absence with appropriate personnel in school and with the child’s parents/carer. We hope that parents will assist us in our work of raising attendance levels throughout the school by:


  • Ensuring the regular attendance of their child.
  • Informing school when their child is absent from school and the reason for the absence.
  • Attending any meetings about their child’s attendance.
  • Taking holidays during school closure.
