Every School Day Counts

Parents and carers have a legal duty to ensure that their children regularly attend school. 

The Department for Education have produced useful leaflets for parents:

Attendance Matters- A Parents Guide

Miss School = Miss Out     (click HERE for the Polish version and HERE for the Czech version)


Our school target is a minimum of 96% attendance.

Students with 90% attendance miss:

  • 4 whole weeks of lessons each year
  • half a year of their secondary education

Research suggests that 94% attendance (17 days missed from school each year) equates to a drop of 1 GCSE grade in every subject.

There are 175 days per year that are non school days for other activities such as holidays and days out.     Thank you for your support.
