    School Attendance Matters

     

    Why is good attendance and punctuality important?

  • Regular attendance is vital if your child is to benefit fully from their education

  • Every absence means that vital lessons missed

  • It is easy to fall behind but difficult to make up lost time

  • It is good training for the future

  • It is your legal responsibility

     

    How can parents support good attendance in school?

     

  • Establish a routine that allows your child to arrive at school, on time, every day

  • Always contact school immediately when your child is absent

  • Follow this up with a written explanation of the child’s absence when he/she returns to school

     

    If you are experiencing difficulties getting your child to school on time or have questions/issues relating to poor attendance, please contact the school office on 01924 303700.  Our Learning Mentor (Mrs Peaker) will be able to offer guidance and support.

     

    Our Text Messaging System is used to contact parents who do not advise school of their child's absence.  Please contact the School Office by phone if you receive a text message regarding your child's absence.
