The attendance of our children in school is very important to us. As you are already aware, as a school we monitor and track attendance very closely. We look at trends in attendance, attendance for different groups of children and track attendance on an individual basis. Our whole school data is currently in line with national data.

 

Research has shown that a drop in attendance can have a negative impact on a child’s attainment and behaviour; it is therefore one of the areas which we closely monitor throughout the year. We understand that young children pick up illnesses and cannot always attend school if they are unwell. We aim for all children to have at least 95% attendance each half term.

 

When a child's attendance drops below this good level of attendance they are missing out on a significant number of learning experiences. The table below sets out how much time a child misses in a school year at different attendance percentages.

 

If you require any further information or we can support, you and your family, in anyway please do not hesitate to come and speak to us.

 

 

Fixed Penalty Notices

Where a parent fails to ensure the regular school attendance of their child at a school at which they are a registered pupil then the parent may be guilty of an offence under Section 444 of the Education Act 1996. Where a child has not attended regularly at school, a fixed penalty notice to the parents can be issued. Non-school attendance includes any day when a child should be in attendance at school and they are absent without the authorisation of the school. It also includes unauthorised holidays during term time, children seen in a public place during the first 5 days of an exclusion and persistent late arrival at school beyond the registration period (9.30 am).
