Attendance Information

We know that children and young people who have good attendance at school achieve better outcomes. Your child's attendance is important and we will work with you to ensure that this is a priority. It is really important that you let us know if your child is not going to be in school by phoning the main school office on: 01278 421148

Our welfare team work tirelessly to improve attendance across the school. The flow chart below shows the procedure the school follows every day:

 If your child does not arrive in school and we cannot make contact with you, it is likely we will make a visit to your home to check everything is ok. Please do not be alarmed by this, we are here to help and support.
