Attendance

Good attendance, and being on time every morning, is very important.

Good attendance means that children get the best out of their education. This not only results in strong learning and progress - it boosts confidence & social skills too.

Absence and/or lateness will result in gaps in learning and may mean that a child doesn’t get the best out of his/her time in school.

We know that sometimes, of course, absence is unavoidable. However, we work hard with parents and children to ensure that attendance is as good as possible.

What parents/carers should do:

  • Make sure you child is always on time for school.
  • Schedule appointments (dentists etc) out of school hours if possible.
  • Do not allow your child odd days off for birthdays, shopping, visiting relatives etc.
  • Do not take holidays in term-time. Children get 13 weeks official annual holiday. Note that from September 2013, the Department for Education took away the power of schools to grant leave for term-time leave of absence (except in 'exceptional' circumstances).
  • If absence is unavoidable - for example if your child is ill - please inform the school promptly, on the morning of the first day of absence.

What school will do:

  • We will monitor all attendance closely.
  • We will support you to improve your child’s attendance and punctuality.
  • If we don't hear from you on your child's first day of absence, we will ring you (but we'd prefer it if you rang us!).
  • For families where attendance/punctuality becomes a concern, we will ask parents/carers to come into school to meet with the Family Support Officer.
  • If attendance falls below 90% we will involve the local authority attendance team.
  • We will provide weekly and termly rewards and certificates for good attendance.

Keeping Children Safe Online

Keeping children safe whilst online is essential. For more information about how to keep your child safe when they are using electronic devices whilst at home, please take a look at our Staying Safe Online page within the parents section.

Support for Parents

We will continue to update this section of our website with outside agency support and courses that are available to parents.

 

 

Supporting your Anxious Child

 

The Educational Psychology team have distributed this leaflet to help parents who may have children who are demonstrating anxiety. Please continue to pop into school to speak with our Family Support Officers who can offer advice regarding children's anxiety or signpost you to outside agencies. 

Advice on supporting your anxious child

How are we Doing?

 

We really do appreciate feedback from parents/carers, to find out about how you feel about the school and give you the opportunity to express your views. Do feel free to let us know what has gone well or what would make things even better.

 

We would also like to encourage parents to update the parent view site, as and when they want to. This is something that Ofsted will look at when they carry out school inspections.
