Regular and punctual attendance is crucial to each child’s educational and personal development.  We recognise the need to play our part in assisting parents to fulfil their legal obligation to ensure their child’s punctuality and attendance.  It is essential that if your child is unable to attend school through ill health or for any other reason you explain the absence by prompt contact with the school.  We will contact parents over any unexplained absence.  2012– 2016produced the following statistics for absences.  It should be understood that unauthorised absence does not equate to truancy.
