Cavendish Primary School

Current Attendance in School 2018-2019

As you may be aware we have launched a couple of new initiatives at the start of the spring term 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:


Autumn Term 93.2%
Spring Term 94.4%


Term Time holidays

Autumn Term 55 Pupils / 621 sessions
Spring Term 10 Pupils / 144 sessions


Unauthorised Absence

Autumn Term 2.0%
Spring Term 1.1%


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.

Summer Term Attendance

Week 1 (29/04/2019 – 03/04/2019) – 96.3%

Week 2 (07/05/2019 – 10/05/2019) – 94.4%
