Attendance

         
   

 

Regular attendance and punctuality at school is important for your child’s well-being. Children who miss school are missing out on essential social interaction which can affect their ability to make friends. The facts show that if your child does noes attend school regularly, they are less likely to do as well as other children.

We are committed to working with parents to increase the attendance and punctuality of all our pupils.

The table above shows the relationship between the percentage of attendance and days off over the course of a school year. You will see from the figures that the odd day off really does add up

 

The table below illustrates how being just a few minutes late can have a negative effect on your child’s learning and shows figures over the course of a year.

Children who miss school can fall behind in their work and then struggle to catch up.  This can have a significant effect on their confidence and self-esteem.

 

At Stokeinteignhead we believe that instilling the principles of high attendance and punctuality will  help children to develop good habits for the future. Good attendance and punctuality will help to give your child the best chance with their learning and progress, and will provide them with life skills to help them achieve success both now and in the future.
