Attendance really does matter!
Did you know that:
- 90% Attendance means 4 WHOLE WEEKS of school.
This level of attendance is not good. 90% means your child will struggle with their school work because they have the equivalent of 1 day off every fortnight!
- 17 days off school every year means your child will probably obtain a WHOLE GRADE LOWER in their exams than they are really capable of.
Do you really want this for your child?
If your child's attendance is above 96% you are giving them the opportunity to achieve and succeed...
...not just now but throughout their ives!
So, what can we do about it, together?
At the end of this school year, your child's attendance will be categorised into Red, Amber or Green zone.
Every term that attendance will be re-categorised and reported to you.
Our aim is for all childen to have at least 96% for both attendance and punctuality and be in the 'green safety zone'
If your child's attendance falls below 96%
They will be in the 'amber at risk zone'
You will receive a letter and we wil monitor your child's attendance and punctuality and hope to see an improvement in the coming month.
If your child's attendance falls below 92%
They will be in the 'red danger zone'
We will contact you to arrange a metting to discuss how we may support you further and make the improvements necessary and we may refer the matter to our Education Welfare Office.
