Our target was to achieve 96.1%. However, at the end of the year we had achieved in the region of 95%.
Attendance and Holiday Requests
It is the expectation of the school that all children will attend school 100% of the time. However, children with an absence record of below 97% will not be authorised any absence unless medical evidence or extenuating circumstances are otherwise proven.
Good attendance is a key to any child being able to fulfil their potential and make good progress in school. The government have lowered the threshold for children considered to be persistently absent to 10% - this means that children must have no more than 10 days out of school for any reason each academic year. We have very effective systems in school to monitor attendance and parents of children whose attendance falls below what is acceptable will be invited to a meeting with the school pastoral and attendance team to discuss how the school can support parents to overcome any issues that are causing poor attendance.
