We will continue to implement rigorous and robust systems in order to improve attendance at the school.
Early morning telephone calls are being made to all families where the reason for absences has not been reported to us. Weekly checks on individual percentages are being carried out, and families whose attendance is causing concern are receiving an attendance letter. Were attendance hasn't improved parents are requested to attend meetings with the Headteacher & Attendance Officer.
Thank you to all parents and carers who have really worked with the school to make sure that their children are in school every day. This is something we are really passionate about.
