One of our main targets from Estyn is to improve our attendance. You can help.
If your child is ill or absent for any other reason, contact the school on the first day of absence.
Make sure your child arrives at school on time.
Take an interest in your child’s education. Ask them about their day and praise and encourage their achievements at school.
Attending 4 ½ days a week = 90% attendance = 4 weeks missed per year
Attending 4 days a week = 80% attendance = more than half a term missed per year or 2 full years missed over the course of their school career
Attending 3 ½ days each week = 70% attendance = more than a quarter of the school year missed.
We all want our children to get on well in life. Nowadays, it is more important than ever to have a good education behind you if you want opportunities in adult life. Children only get one chance at school, and your child’s chances of a successful future may be affected by not attending school regularly. If children do not attend school regularly they may: struggle to keep up with school work. They will miss out on the social side of school life. Poor attendance can affect children’s ability to make and keep friendships; a vital part of growing up. Setting good attendance patterns from an early age, from nursery classes through primary school, will also help your child later on. Employers want to recruit people who are reliable. So children who have a poor school attendance record may have less chance of getting a good job.
