Attendance

Attendance

Excellent attendance is expected of all children, but when children are unwell parents are expected to confirm absence by telephone immediately. If there is no notification school has a policy of phoning home to ascertain each child’s whereabouts.

The school works closely with the Local Education Authority’s Welfare officer whenever a child’s attendance and punctuality causes concern. Attendance rates are reported each term to the LEA, annually to the government and to all parents. Positive measures are in place to encourage children to attend regularly and punctually.
