Being in school on time and ready to learn is important, very important! If your child is not in school then they cannot learn and we cannot help them learn.

If your child is late into school then they will always be trying to catch up with the rest of the class.

The Facts

  • Making sure your child comes to school on time everyday has a massive impact on their future life chances.
  • All parents have a legal responsibility to ensure that their children attend school.
  • Our school target for attendance is 96%.
  • Children who have attendances of less than 90% over the time that they are in primary school will have missed one year of teaching.
  • Holidays during term time will not be authorised by the school and parents may be fined as a result.
  • Parents will be contacted informally if attendance is a concern and attendance will be monitored.
  • Attendance panels are the next stage of raising official concerns and agreeing improvements.
  • Where necessary parents will be fined for their children's persistent non-attendance.
  • In the most extreme cases parents may be prosecuted.
