Cavendish Primary School

Current Attendance in School 2019-2020


As you may be aware we have launched a couple of new initiatives at the start of the spring term last academic year to help support parents/carers with their child’s attendance including;

  • Termly Attendance challenge
  • Termly Attendance certificates and prizes for children with good attendance
  • Regular raffles with prizes for 100% attendance
  • Regularly informing parents/carers of their child’s attendance
  • Drop in sessions to discuss attendance concerns and how the school can support
  • Attendance monitoring with the Education Safeguarding Team to ensure individual family’s attendance improves and less children are classed as persistently absent
  • Rigorously implementing our term time holiday policy including fines for all term time holidays

The impact of this has been:

Term Time holidays

Autumn Term 22 Pupils / 260 sessions

All pupils who took a term time holiday (5 or more days) were issued with a local authority penalty fine notice of £60 per parent for each child.
