School Attendance

 As you will be aware, good school attendance gives your child the opportunity for success and to develop skills for life. Your child should attend school every day unless there is an unavoidable cause like an illness.  Regular attendance is crucial if children are to reach their full potential, build their social skills and friendships, develop a love of learning and be prepared for their future.


We monitor all children’s attendance very closely and work with our Educational Welfare Officer (EWO). Together we review the attendance of those children who have fallen below 96% and we also look at the attendance of children who are classed as persistent absentees (those with attendance that is below 90%).  We then contact to families in order to work together to make plans to improve attendance.  We would like to thank you for your help with these procedures and for supporting the school in its efforts to raise attendance.  If you have any questions concerning attendance please do not hesitate to contact us.

Our named School Attendance Officer is Mrs L Stevenson.
