Punctuality & Attendance

Attendance and Punctuality


Regular attendance at school is of vital importance to your child’s education and development. Children with good attendance enjoy school and learning more - this has a significant impact on their learning and outcomes. 


As a parent, it is your legal responsibility to make sure your child attends school regularly. It is our responsibility to support good attendance and effectively monitor all absence from school. Our attendance target, for all pupils, is at least 97%.


Good punctuality is similarly important. Please ensure your child arrives at school by 08:55, other than in exceptional circumstances.
