Please visit all sections within this Attendance Tab for up-to-date information with regard to attendance. 










There are many parents/carers who bring your children to school on time every day and, as a result, they have excellent attendance.

Attendance and punctuality are important disciplines that help to structure our daily lives and must be taught to children. Schools have a duty to prepare pupils for life in the 21st century as fully formed citizens and part of this journey is to teach them about the importance of these two disciplines.

The Government line on attendance is very clear:

Central to raising standards in education and ensuring all pupils can fulfil their potential is an assumption so widely understood that it is insufficiently stated – pupils need to attend school regularly to benefit from their education. Missing out on lessons leaves children vulnerable to falling behind.

Children with poor attendance tend to achieve less in both primary and secondary school than regular  attendance children.
