It is vital for children to attend school regularly and punctually for all to obtain the maximum benefit from school life. We have introduced a new half termly ‘Traffic Light’ system as a way to monitor attendance at school. At the end of each half term, we will be sending out attendance letters to celebrate good attendance levels and to highlight any areas of concern.
The minimum attendance level which is expected annually is 95%. Good attendance is very important so that children are given as much opportunity as possible to develop academically and socially. When children are absent from school they often find it difficult to catch up on the work they have missed and can feel unsettled by this.
