Why attendance matters...
Article 28: Every child has the right to an education.
An attendance rate of 95% - 100% is the expected amount a child should be in school. Children who attend this amount of time are likely to reach their full potential in education and go on to college and university. Therefore it is really important that your child attends school every day.
If your child has 1 day of a fortnight this adds up to one and a half years during their school life, it is proven that this often limits what they can achieve when they are 16. Please only keep your child at home if they are really unwell. If you are not sure bring your child/ren to school and let the class teacher know.
