Attendance



Top Attendance


Top attendance is celebrated in school assemblies and display on our hall boards, along with any reference to individuals with 96% attendance or above.

Thank you to parents for your continued support with raising attendance and, in turn, raising achievement.

Rewarding Good Attendance


Good attendance is highly important for us – the more your children are in school, the more they will learn and the more they will achieve. Your children receive certificates and rewards throughout the school year, for achieving 96%+ attendance. Many children were pleased to receive special certificates and prizes during our end of term Prize Days, for reaching 96+% every half term. Some children even achieved 100% across the whole year – fantastic!

Holidays


Mrs Andrews, our Inclusion Manager, works with parents to improve attendance; if you need any support with this, you are welcome to make an appointment via the school office.

Due to recent legislation, we are not able to authorise any holidays during term time. As a school, we are obliged to inform you that you may be subject to a Penalty Notice if your child’s absence from school is unauthorised. This is in line with the Local Authority’s Code of Conduct.

Penalty Notice


The Penalty Notice fine would be:

  • £60 per parent, per child if paid within 21 days
  • £120 per parent, per child if paid between 21-28 days

If the fine is not paid within 28 days you may be prosecuted under S444.1 of the Education Act 1996. If the prosecution takes place, the maximum fine is £1,000 per parent, per child. This reflects the seriousness of unauthorised absence from school.

School Closures
