Regular school attendance is an important part of giving your child the best possible start in life. If you have a difficulty getting your child to school, please make an appointment with Mrs Julyan, who monitors attendance and lateness.

  • There are 365 days a year – you only have to attend school for 190 of those.  That leaves 175 days to do everything else.

  • If you are 5 minutes late every day… that adds up to 3 days lost per year

  • If you are 15 minutes late every day… that adds up to almost 10 days lost every year.

  • If you are absent from school for 1 day a week throughout your school life… you will be missing 2 years of your education.

  • If you are absent from school for 1 day every half a term throughout your whole school life, you will miss, in total, 3 months of education

  • 90% attendance throughout your school life = missing 1 whole year of education

Absences and Sickness

If your child is away from school please keep us informed, i.e. before 9.30am of the first day of absence with the reason why they are absent. If you have not informed the office before 9.30am, we follow safeguarding procedures and will try to contact parents/carers/those on our contacts list to ascertain a reason for absence. Schools must record unauthorised absences and report them to the Department for Education. If a child is away from school for some time you may receive a visit from the Educational Welfare Officer.
