Attendance

Regular school attendance is an important part of giving your child the best possible start in life. If you have a difficulty getting your child to school, please make an appointment with Mrs Parr, who monitors attendance and lateness.

 

  • There are 365 days a year – you only have to attend school for 190 of those.  That leaves 175 days to do everything else
  • If you are 5 minutes late every day… that adds up to 3 days lost per year
  • If you are 15 minutes late every day… that adds up to almost 10 days lost every year
  • If you are absent from school for 1 day a week throughout your school life… you will be missing 2 years of your education
  • If you are absent from school for 1 day every half a term throughout your whole school life, you will miss, in total, 3 months of education
  • 90% attendance throughout your school life = missing 1 whole year of education
