Attendance Information for Parents

Attendance Procedures 2023-24


We work closely with families to develop good patterns of attendance ensuring all children reach their full potential.


Expectation: 96%+

Strategies in place:

  • Classes compete for the highest attendance and this is celebrated in the weekly newsletter
  • Attendance and punctuality is now formally recorded and discussed at Parent Consultations alongside children’s academic achievements each term
  • Attendance continues to recorded and commented on in children’s end of year reports


When children’s attendance/punctuality drops below:

  • A letter is sent home each term to inform parents of the drop in attendance, where necessary (below 95%)
  • If there is no improvement, parents are invited to a meeting with the Headteacher and an action plan is created
  • If there is still no improvement, the local authority are contacted and parents are invited to  meeting with the Attendance Officer to discuss ways to improve attendance
  • Unauthorised absence may result in the school referring to the Local Authority for sanctions and/or legal proceedings


Please Note: The Headteacher refers to the Attendance Policy when responding to all applications for Leave of Absence
