Cavendish Primary School

Attendance

100% attendance at school is extremely important to ensure all pupils achieve their full academic potential.  We recognise that good attendance and punctuality is crucial to raising standards and pupil attainment. Any absence affects the pattern of a child’s schooling and regular absence will seriously affect their learning.

We expect all children to attend school every day.  Ensuring a child’s attendance at school is a parental responsibility and permitting absence from school without good reason is an offence of the law and may result in prosecution.

The safeguarding of our pupils is paramount when they are in our care.  For this reason, the Governing Body’s policy on attendance aims to ensure every pupil is accounted for on each of the days school is open and a comprehensive system of attendance is maintained for every pupil on roll.

As attendance is crucial to effective learning and the continuity of learning experiences, school places great emphasis on this in its communication with parents. We will do all we can to encourage the children to attend, and put in place appropriate procedures to support this.

Cavendish Primary School is a happy school.  Children learn best when they are happy and relaxed.  All staff show concern and care about each child’s welfare.
