Good attendance to school is a necessity, not only to enable progress to be made towards targets, not just academic targets, but because you, as parents, have a legal obligation to ensure your child attends school regularly.
We do understand that this is not always that simple and we would like to help. Every Monday from 4 to 6 pm, there will be an ‘Attendance Surgery’. No appointment necessary; just come along and have a chat to someone who understands and is here to help.
Attendance Policy Updated August 2016
