School Attendance Matters

 

Our school target for attendance is 96%.  We will send home your child’s attendance each half term so you can easily keep track of their attendance rate. In discussions with the Educational Welfare Service, we have introduced the following guide for parents:

Attendance over one school year

 

If a pupil had:

98% attendance = less than 4 days absent from school

95% attendance = less than 10 days absent from school

90% attendance = 4 weeks absent from school

85% attendance = 5 ½ weeks absent from school

80% attendance = 7 ½ weeks absent from school 

 

Remember:  S.A.M. - School Attendance Matters!

 

If you have any queries or concerns about attendance or punctuality matters or would like us to support you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to continuing to work with you all to ensure that children’s attendance is the very best it can be to give them the very best chances in school and beyond.
