Late/Absence Procedures

Policy for Attendance

We aim for an environment which enables and encourages all members of our school community to aspire to excellence. For our children to gain the greatest benefit from their education, it is vital that they attend regularly and on time, unless the reason for absence is unavoidable. Regular attendance at the school is a legal responsibility. Poor punctuality is not acceptable. Creating a pattern of regular attendance is the joint responsibility of parents, pupils and staff. There is an expectation that over the course of an academic year, a child’s attendance will be 96% or more.
