One of the main priorities for the school is to raise the level of attendance. When the predecessor school went into special measures in 2011 attendance stood at just 85%. We have improved attendance every year since.
In 2011/12 the attendance was 88%, 2013/14 – 94%, 2014/15 – 95.9%, 2015/2016 – 96.1% and 2016/17 TBC.
Target for 2017/18: 97.5%
The school pays very close attention to attendance.
In total 85% of a child’s life is spent at home. As educationalists we have to do the business with 15% of your child’s time. If your child is not in school that is reduced even more. We have a zero tolerance approach to children missing school unnecessarily. If your child is not at school they’re simply not learning and that is not good enough.
