Cliffedale Primary School

Be the best that you can be

Good Attendance

The Government states that an attendance rate of less than 95% will have a detrimental effect on a child’s education. It is therefore Cliffedale Primary School’s aim that each of our pupils should have an attendance rate as high as possible with our target for attendance being at least 97% each academic year unless there are exceptional circumstances, out of the child’s control, that affect their attendance at school. If a pupil’s attendance looks like it might fall below 95% by the end of the academic year, the school will support that child and their family to ensure that their attendance rate is as high as it can possibly be, working in partnership with external agencies to provide support where necessary


Miss Graham is our Attendance Champion. If you have any concerns regarding your child's attendance or are aware of something which is impacting on your child's attendance please get in touch and Miss Graham will be able to help and support. 

Good attendance means.....
