Our attendance target is 97% for the next academic year 2017-2018.
The whole school target achieved this year from September to the end of term July 2017 was only 94.2% We acknowledge this is below our target, but there are some justifiable reasons. As an inclusive school, we have some children with medical issues who have genuine illnesses, which require them to be off school for longer periods of time.
From September 2017 the school has employed an Attendance Officer who will support the school in implementing in full the new attendance policy. This is to reduce the amount of absence that some children experience due to parents experiencing difficulties in getting their children to school.
