Vale of York Academy @ValeYorkAcademyWe are all so proud of what Hannah has achieved - she embraced everything but the mountain day and fought off a lot of worries! So pleased she has enjoyed it so much and thank you again personally for the lovely gift! It was our pleasure to share this mega exciting adventure 👍 https://t.co/rSkFNY1U3c3 weeks ago
Vale of York Academy @ValeYorkAcademyBoth Alfie and Lucy were amazing this past 2 weeks and we’re keen to look out for each other and others in the group. They both worked hard to conquer the mountain, inspiring others around them to strive for the top! It was a pleasure to embrace the experience with them 👍 https://t.co/s9faMlvNCi3 weeks ago
What can you do as a parent to increase your child’s attendance?
Total school attendance is: 96%
Find our regular your child’s absence record (ask for half days if easier) and check this matches with your own records.
Talk regular with your child about school and how they feel about it. They are more likely to attend if they feel supported and their anxieties are being listened to.
Phone us as soon as possible to tell us why your child is absent and when you expect them to return. Putting the school number in your phone can save you time. Know the school routine for alerting you to absence.
Only grant days at home for genuine illness. (You will know!)
Know routines of the school day to avoid issues, e.g. have they got their PE kit?
If you have concerns, ring us – we will check attendance and be discreet.
