Attendance & Absence

Every child has the right to the best education and deserves to be happy and successful in school. We foster children’s growing independence and aspirations by giving them opportunities to plan and execute their own work and we encourage children to support and learn from each other. We respect every person as unique and treat everyone with dignity. We always seek to improve and work together to achieve more, especially valuing our partnership with parents. We encourage high standards and know every child can be successful.

It is our duty to consistently strive to achieve a goal of 100% attendance for all children. Every opportunity will be used to convey to pupils and their parents or carers the importance of regular and punctual attendance.
