Where a child’s attendance is low (below 90%), and we have concerns about the reasons for their absence, we will contact parents/carers to try to improve attendance together.

A letter will be sent to inform parents where children’s attendance is below 90%, as this represents a significant amount of missed learning.

We think it’s helpful for parents to be aware of the amount of learning their child has missed, even though we appreciate there may be circumstances, such as specific medical needs, which have made absence unavoidable.  

We target children’s attendance because we know it impacts their learning, their friendships, and their life chances. The letters are intended as a way of sharing information with you and not as a judgement.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
