Attendance and Absence

Our school is committed to promoting the welfare of your child through regular school attendance. We know that every day lost to education can have a serious impact on your child’s attainment and overall progress in school. We are therefore fully committed to promoting school attendance by providing an environment and ethos where children feel safe and can build positive relationships with their peers.

We expect that in return parents ensure that their child attends school regularly and punctually and that holidays in term time are avoided.   It is also important that your child is punctual; consistent lateness is detrimental to their progress and disrupts the start of the day for the class.

If your child is ill, then the school office should be notified at the earliest opportunity.

For the year 2014/2015 the percentage of half days missed was 2.58%, with an unauthorised absence rate of 0.24%.  Therefore our attendance rate was 97.42%.

In Derbyshire, the percentage of half days missed (2013) was 3.5%, with an unauthorised absence rate of 0.4%.  The national average (2013) for the percentage of half days missed was 3.9%.  Therefore our school absence rate is well below both Local and National averages.
