Our attendance is currently 94% .
We have a responsibility to ensure that no child is left behind due to persistent absence. As a school, we promote good attendance and act early to work with families to make sure children are in school as often as they possibly can be.
It is also very important to be on time and not be late to school. “Just 5 minutes” of lateness each day means a child will miss a total of 3 days’ worth of school over the year.
If you are worried about your child’s attendance then get in touch to see how we can help. This information from the NHS is helpful when considering if your child is well enough to come into school – https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/is-my-child-too-ill-for-school/ .
