Attendance Matters

 

Good school attendance gives your child the opportunity of success and helps develop skills for life. Regular attendance at school means that your child can make the most of their education and improve their chances in adult life.

 

School can also help your child’s social skills such as making and developing friendships. A regular and punctual attendance pattern will help your child when they enter the world of work.

 

The link between attendance and attainment in school is clear. The more a pupil is in school the more they increase their opportunity to fulfil their potential.

 

Your child should attend school every day unless there is an unavoidable cause. If you need to take your child out of school during term time, please complete the ‘Exceptional Absence Request Form’ available from the school office. Please provide as much information as possible regarding your reason(s) for taking your child out of school, particularly giving details of why the event/occasion cannot take place during a school holiday. All exceptional absence requests have to be approved by the Headteacher and should be notified at least 10 days in advance of the dates requested. If your request is not approved it means that the absence will be listed as unauthorised and, in line with Government policy, it could result in a fine.

 

Visit the Bristol City Council website for more details regarding school attendance.

Punctuality Matters

 

Being punctual involves showing respect for others and their time. It helps pupils present an "I care" attitude that not only helps them succeed in school but also in life.


Being on time:

 gets the day off to a good start, so that children can make the most of learning opportunities;
 sets positive patterns for the future;
 leads to better achievement because they attend the WHOLE of lessons; and,
 leads to understanding that school is important and education is valuable.
