Research shows that pupils who attend school regularly and who are punctual gain the most from their education so therefore, we insist on good attendance and punctuality. A pupil’s absence will be tracked and on return to school a written communication from parents is requested to explain any absence.
We have a ‘free’ breakfast club operating from 08:45 each day and your child is also given a bus pass to assist in travel costs. A team of admin staff, key workers and an education social worker are there to monitor attendance and to provide advice, support and guidance on your child attending school each day. We also offer a mini bus service for students who have to travel a long distance to school.
Please telephone school if you know your child is going to be absent due to illness. We insist on a medical certificate if sickness absence is prolonged. We believe that school and parents/carers working together can ensure full attendance for your child.
