View our attendance aims and targets.
This is a successful school and every child plays their part in making it so.
We aim for an environment which enables and encourages all children to achieve their potential and aspire to excellence. For our children to gain the greatest benefit from their education it is vital that they attend regularly and every child should be at school, on time, every day the school is open unless they have an unavoidable reason to be absent. Any absence affects the pattern of a child’s schooling and regular absence will seriously affect their learning and progress.
We ask parents to ensure that their child comes to school on time every day. Late arrival affects children’s emotional wellbeing and also disrupts teaching routines and so may affect the learning of others in the same class.
Government research shows a direct link between attendance and attainment and good attenders also make better progress socially, learn to work with others, and are better prepared for the transition to secondary school and, eventually, higher education, training and employment. It is very important therefore that you make sure that your child attends regularly. Our Attendance Policy provides further details about attendance, including procedures and monitoring that we carry out.
The Department for Education target for attendance is 96%. Our aspirational attendance target this year is 97%, but all children should strive to achieve 100% attendance if they can and we thank parents with their support to achieve this.
