We want all children at our school to get the most out of their education, and attending school regularly is an important part of your child's education.
Having a good education will help to give your child the best possible start in life. Poor school attendance damages educational achievement and the future progress of young people. Promoting and supporting good attendance at school is essential to learning and attainment.
Children's attendance should be at least 95% or above.
All pupils have their own user name and passwords for our pupil rewards site, on each child's home page there is a pie chart which gives their percentage attendance.
Make sure that your child comes to school regularly and arrives on time. It's a good idea to start these positive habits at an early age, when your child first starts school.
By law, all children of compulsory school age must be provided with a suitable full-time education. As a parent, you are responsible for making sure this happens, either by registering your child at a school or by making other arrangements which provide an effective education.
If your child is not attending school regularly, a member of our attendance team may visit you. It is important that you co-operate with the school to make sure your child overcomes his or her attendance problems and gets a proper education.
If you do not do everything you can to co-operate with the attendance team and the school, we may have no choice but to consider legal action. This could result in you being issued a fixed penalty notice of up to £120, fined up to £2,500 for each child who is not going to school and/or a possibility of imprisonment for up to three months.
These consequences are set by the government.
