Why is Regular School Attendance so Important?

Stoke Heath Primary School works closely with children and parents in connection with attendance so that each child can achieve their full potential. By law, all children of compulsory school age (five to 16) must receive a suitable full-time education.
Once your child is registered at school, you are legally responsible for making sure that they attend regularly. If your child fails to do so, you risk getting a penalty notice or being prosecuted. You also need to think about the negative impact upon the following:

  • their learning
  • their friendships
  • their self-esteem and confidence.

Stoke Heath Primary monitors the attendance of every child in the school and in
partnership with the Children and Families First Team, we will work and support those
children and their families who are not attending school without sufficient reason.
90 Percent attendance sounds good, but means that your child misses:

  • one half day each week
  • nearly four weeks every school year
  • over one school year in a school career

Last year our we met our target of 95.5% by achieving 96.7%.

Our school’s target for the 2016 / 2017 school year is 96.3%. Together we can  achieve it.

Timekeeping

Timekeeping is also important in the education of your child. If your child is persistantly late then they are missing out on important learning opportunities at the start of the lesson. Can we also remind parents and carers that the school gates are open from 8:30am. The school day finishes at 3:00pm

 

At Stoke Heath Primary School we like to encourage and praise children who attend school regularly. Throughout the year our learning mentors work closely with families providing support to help overcome barriers in improving attendance. Throughout the year there are many opportunities for children to win many exciting prizes through celebrating good punctuality and attendance.

Look at what we do at Stoke Heath Primary School to help improve attendance.
