Our Attendance Team: Mrs Bowen and Mrs Draper

Please contact the school immediately if your child is absent. The school has a first day response policy and will phone parents or carers if the absence is not communicated to the school. The Education Welfare Officer tracks attendance carefully and contacts families where attendance is below an acceptable level. Please understand that children cannot reach their potential academically and socially if attendance is low.

The school also places a high importance on punctuality. Pupils who do not start the day by lining up with their peers are not socialising before school starts. This often puts the child on a “back foot” for the rest of the day. For safeguarding reasons, pupils who arrive late must be brought to the office by an appropriate adult and signed in.

To improve pupil attendance, a decision has been taken by Partneriaeth, our regional education consortium, that no absences due to holidays during term times will be authorised by head teachers. This means that absences due to pupils being taken on holiday will be recorded as unauthorised. We hope that you will support this policy and arrange your holidays during the 175 remaining days that the school is closed.

We all know that there is a strong link between a child’s progress, their attendance and punctuality. If you have any queries or concerns about your child’s attendance, our Attendance Team will be happy to help and support.
