We are committed to meeting our obligation with regards to school attendance through our whole-school culture and ethos that values good attendance, including:
  • promoting good attendance;
  • reducing absence, including persistent and severe absence;
  • ensuring every pupil has access to the full-time education to which they are entitled;
  • acting early to address patterns of absence;
  • building strong relationships with families to ensure pupils have the support in place to attend school. We will also promote and support punctuality in attending lessons.
Why attendance and punctuality matters
Across one school year:
  • Less than 5 days absence = 97.3% attendance
  • 14 days absence (approx.) = 92.6% attendance
  • 20 days absence (approx.) = 89.4% attendance
  • 30 days absence (approx.) = 84.2% attendance
If a child achieves 80% attendance this means that they have missed approximately 39 days of education over the academic year, averaging 1 day per week
