Attendance

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.
