Attendance & Absence

It is the responsibility of the parent or carer to ensure that their child arrives at school on time and appropriately dressed. The law states that every child has the right to a full time education and it is the duty of the parent/carer to ensure that this happens. It is well documented that there is a strong correlation between a student’s attendance and academic achievement. School provides opportunities. Absence robs students of opportunities! Good attendance does matter and students should be encouraged to attend school at all times for the following reasons:

  • To learn
  • To enjoy
  • To be safe and warm
  • To meet and interact with adults (staff) and peers (friends)
  • To prepare for the world of work and lifelong learning.
