From September 2022, the DfE have published clear guidance on how schools and parents should work together to ensure that children enjoy great attendance at school.
Please see the relevant documents below. The summary table clearly outlines expectations of parents, schools and local authorities in ensuring that this happens.
Please note that our school will respond to poor attendance with a range of strategies, from celebrating excellent attendance, through to in-school support. We will also use the Local Authority support mechanisms, including penalty notices where absolutely necessary.
Mrs Sutton is responsible for supporting families to achieve and maintain good attendance. If you require any additional support, please contact her on 01772 792573 or in the School Office. She has an excellent range of strategies and is always happy to help.
NEW - JUNE 2022 - Please see letter sent home w/c 27/6/2022 REGARDING ATTENDANCE AND FIXED PENALTY NOTICES.
PIZZA AND POPCORN PUNCTUALITY PARTIES
To encourage children to attend school every day on time, each class can earn points towards a Pizza and Popcorn Punctuality Party. We call them our PPP Parties!
