Why attendance matters…
Article 28: Every child has the right to an education.
As a school we aim for all children to achieve 100% attendance, unless illness or an unavoidable cause prevents them from attending school. Children who attend this amount of time are likely to reach their full potential in education and go on to college and university. Therefore it is really important that your child attends school every day.
If your child has 1 day off a fortnight this adds up to one and a half years during their school life, it is proven that this often limits what they can achieve when they are 16. Please only keep your child at home if they are really unwell. If you are not sure bring your child/ren to school and let the class teacher know.
Holidays are not permitted in term time, and absences may incur a fixed penalty notice. More information can be found on the North Somerset website:
Families may need to request leave for exceptional circumstances, such as a family funeral or religious observance. Please ask the office for a form.
