Parents have a legal obligation to ensure their children attend school regularly and should be aware that absences during term time can seriously disrupt the continuity of learning.
We appreciate that all family circumstances can sometimes be difficult, however children need to be in school as much as possible. Attendance is seen as a key school performance indicator and is closely monitored by the Local Authority and Ofsted. To this end the school must collect and report details of authorised and unauthorised absences by law.
To encourage high levels of attendance we:
- Provide a creative, varied and inclusive curriculum which encourages a love of learning for all our pupils.
- Collaborate closely with external agencies to help families and pupils make the most of their schooling. Inform parents regularly about any attendance issues concerning their children.
