Regular and punctual attendance is crucial to each child’s educational and personal development. We recognise the need to play our part in assisting parents to fulfil their legal obligation to ensure their child’s punctuality and attendance. It is essential that if your child is unable to attend school through ill health or for any other reason you explain the absence by prompt contact with the school. We will contact parents over any unexplained absence.
It should be understood that unauthorised absence does not equate to truancy.
Attendance Support Bus
From Monday 5th November, the Attendance Support Bus will be out in the community. This is one of several new initiatives being rolled out to improve student attendance. If a student is marked absent then they may be visited by the Attendance Team to see if we can support getting them into school.
