“Promoting excellent attendance is the responsibility of the whole school community”
Low attendance has a direct relationship with the progress of individuals and groups of students and leaves pupils at a disadvantage both socially and educationally. Attendance impacts on the standards achieved by the school. Parents of registered pupils have a legal duty to ensure that a child of compulsory school age attend school regularly. If a child “fails to attend regularly” then we are not providing our students with the opportunity to progress to the best of their ability. Persistent and/or excessive lateness also impacts students progress and has been set as a failure to attend regularly.
