A high level of attendance in school will have a clear and positive impact upon progression and learning. Good attendance is essential if a student is to take advantage of the wide variety of positive experiences to be had in school. Similarly, where a student’s attendance level drops we know that learning and eventually examination performance is hindered significantly. Most students will manage an attendance rate at 95% or higher although many will achieve a 100% attendance record throughout their schooling. Where attendance falls below 95% research tells us that attainment will almost certainly suffer.
The school aims to support students to maintain high levels of attendance through positive partnerships with parents and carers.
We would ask parents to please:
- Notify the school at the earliest opportunity of any absence
- Provide a note in the student planner in order to explain any absence the previous day
