Regular attendance and punctuality are essential if children are to gain maximum benefit from their time in school. The school uses a system called ‘Callio’ to remind parents of how their child’s absence can impact upon their education. All pupils should aim to achieve over 97% attendance.
The school’s attendance records are good-maintaining an average of 95.7% over the past five years. Overall attendance for 2017/8 was 96.6%.
Parents should consider the implications on the education of their children if they take holidays during school time. Even only 10 days absence every academic year of a child’s lifetime, adds up to nearly a whole year of a child’s education missed.
