'Central to raising standards in education and ensuring all pupils can fulfil their potential is an assumption so widely understood that it is insufficiently stated - pupils need to attend school 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.' (Department for Education: School Attendance, Guidance for maintained school, academies, independent schools and local authorities, May 2022)
Good attendance helps to instill positive attitudes and skills for life. Please find below our Attendance Policy.
When pupils are absent from school, we will enact our First Day Calling Procedure which can be read below.
