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.
