We monitor every child's attendance daily. We are able to provide support, or advice, to any parent with regards to attendance. Every school day counts towards your child's future. Days off school add up to lost learning.

Excellent attendance is important for a number of reasons. It has been proven that students with excellent attendance are:
More likely to achieve more GCSEs at a higher grade
Less likely to be involved with anti-social behaviour
Generally more settled within School
In total there are 175 non-school days a year. These 175 days give families an opportunity to:
Spend time together
Go on family visits
Go on holiday
Go on days out
Attend routine appointments
Our inspirational teachers can't inspire you, if you aren't in school.
