Attendance Information

We think that school is an amazing place to be and want to support our children to attend every day. If your child is unwell and needs to stay off school, please contact the school office every morning that they are absent.


Each term, we will have a special assembly to celebrate attendance. Children who have achieved our school target of 96% will be awarded a gold star badge that they can wear to school. Children with 100% attendance will go into a draw which will have 2 amazing hampers as prizes.


That night, children will bring home a letter showing you their attendance so far this year - let’s try to keep them all in the green zone!


If attendance falls below 90%, your child is classed as a ‘persistent absentee’ and Miss Harrison, our Attendance Lead, will be in touch to see how we can support you to improve this.
