All parents/carers have a legal responsibility to ensure their child regularly attends school. When a child attends school on a regular basis, they take an important step towards reaching their full potential, and are given the greatest opportunity to learn new things and develop their skills. Children who miss school can frequently fall behind with their work and do less well in exams. The more time a child spends around other children, whether in the classroom or as part of a school team or club, the more chance they have of making friends and feeling included, boosting social skills, confidence and self-esteem.

What the Research Shows…

Research shows that there is a link between a child’s regular attendance at school and how well they perform academically. This graph shows that in general, pupils with higher absence rates are less likely to achieve the CSI* at the end of Year 6.

*CSI = Core Subject Indicator = Level 4 or above in English, Maths & Science

How is your child’s attendance?

Use this table to work out how many days your child has missed from school this year or this term. If you would like your child’s attendance report at any time throughout the year, please contact the school office.
