Sometimes absence from school is unavoidable: everyone gets ill. By working together, we can ensure that absence is kept to a minimum and your child is happy and learning in school.

Good attendance means achieving 96% attendance each term of the academic year. This is the same as coming to school for 173 days out of a possible 180.

School Attendance Matters!

As a parent it is your lawful duty to ensure that your child regularly attends school. Failing to ensure that your child attends regularly has a number of serious consequences, most importantly:

  • Your child may not learn enough to succeed in life
  • Your child may struggle to build and maintain friendships as children chose friends who are regularly at school
  • You could face legal proceedings and criminal prosecution, which may result in fines, a criminal record or even imprisonment
