Tips and Advice

What can parents do to support their child to achieve good attendance levels?

Parents play a very important role in ensuring the good attendance records of their children.

Below is a list of suggested strategies:

  1. Encourage full attendance.
  2. Stress the importance of full attendance to your child.
  3. Do not allow your child to have time off for minor complaints or illnesses: if they are well enough to be up and about they are generally well enough to attend school.
  4. Monitor your child’s attendance.
  5. Take any vacations in academy holidays, not during term time.
  6. Try to book any medical or dental appointments out of school hours or make them towards the very end of the school day.  Please note the school will not authorise all day absence for medical appointments.
