Attendance at school

Dear Parents / Carers

Children who have attendance of below 85% where no call or note has been received as to -non-attendance, will receive a letter from the school today.  If you receive a letter, please read it and call the school.

Attendance at school is very improtant for children to make good progress in learning and feel that they belong to their school.  Attendance will be reviewed regularly.  

This year we want to ensure that all children receive the education that they are legally entitled to get.  Persistent non-attendance at school with no communication from the child's family will be viewed as a cause for concern regarding the child's wellbeing and will be referred on where necessary.

Many thanks

Mr. Peck
