Attendance

Why is attendance important?

“Pupils need to attend school regularly to benefit from their education. Missing out on lessons leaves children vulnerable to falling behind. Children with poor attendance tend to achieve less in both primary and secondary school.

School attendance - Departmental advice (August 2013)

Regular attendance at school is essential to ensure uninterrupted progress and to enable your child to extend their potential. We expect all children on roll to attend every day, when the school is in session, as long as they are fit and healthy enough to do so. We believe that the most important factor in promoting good attendance is the development of positive attitudes towards school and learning.

Poor attendance can seriously affect your child’s:

  •  attainment in school
  •  relationships with other children and their ability to form lasting friendships
  •  confidence to attempt new work and work alongside others

Parental Responsibility

Parents have a legal duty to ensure that their child attends school regularly and arrives on time. Full attendance is essential to the all-round development of a child and they should be allowed to take full advantage of educational opportunities available to them by law. Poor attendance undermines their education and sometimes, puts pupils at risk. The school share the attendance percentage with parents at each parents’ consultation meeting and more frequently where there are concerns.

It is the parents’ responsibility to contact the school on the first day their child is absent.
This is a safeguarding matter so that all parties know that your child is safe.
