We aim to give your child the very best education possible. To do this, it is essential that your child attends school everyday.   Regular, punctual attendance is important if children are to achieve to the best of their ability. 

It is essential that your child arrives at school on time.  This develops good habits and, if your child is late, valuable learning time is lost and a poor start made to the day.

Parents have a responsibility to ensure that their children receive full time education and regular attendance is essential if children are to progress with their learning. The school day is divided into two registration sessions so, for example, one day of absence will be recorded as two sessions.

The Department for Education states that it is the responsibility of parents to:

Ensure that their children arrive at school on time, properly attired and in a condition to learn.

Inform schools of the reason for a child’s absence as soon as possible and to provide further information as required.
