School attendance is a very important part of your child's educational experience. The best pupils outcomes are achieved by children attending regularly at school.
What if my child is unwell?
If your child is sick and cannot attend school, you should contact school as soon as possible to report the absence. If your child does not arrive by registration close, the school will contact you via email or phone call to find out why your child is absent.
How do school monitor attendance?
Our attendance team monitor attendance daily. Where attendance falls below acceptable levels, we contact parents and discuss any problems that may be causing issues with attendance. We are eager to work with and support families. We encourage parents to talk to school about any barriers they have to ensuring their child attend regularly. We work alongside the education welfare team at ELAN to continuously improve attendance across the school.
We are committed to providing high quality inclusive learning opportunities for all pupils, across all our schools. We believe that if pupils are to reach their full potential, then excellent attendance is crucial. Any problems that impede full attendance will be identified and addressed swiftly. We believe having a consistent approach to pupil attendance across our schools is essential for us to be able to provide high quality and inclusive learning opportunities for all. If there are problems which affect a pupil’s attendance we will investigate, identify and strive in partnership with parents, pupils and our Educational Welfare Officer to resolve those problems as quickly and efficiently as possible.
