Good attendance is vital if children are to fulfil their potential as every school day missed represents a mass of lost learning opportunities. As such, we place a high priority on ensuring that children attend as regularly as possible and set the target that every child's attendance is above 96%. We understand that some absences are unavoidable, but feel it is vitally important that all children should attend as regularly as possible. The children, parents, school staff, governors and the attendance service will work together to ensure that our school attendance is as high as possible. The actions of each group are highlighted in our attendance charter below.
