Persistent Absence

In accordance with our School Attendance Policy, persistent absenteeism means missing 10% or more of schooling across the year for any reason.


In such circumstances, a formal meeting will be arranged between the Head Teacher and parents/carers to discuss and put in place an attendance improvement plan to support and improve attendance.  This may result in Fixed Penalty Notices or other sanctions if poor attendance continues.


If your child dips below 95% school may contact you to discuss your child's absence and how we can support you.
