Attendance

Attendance

 

All children have the right to education, based on equality of opportunity and St Robert Bellarmine Primary School, in partnership with parents and other parties, must take measures to encourage regular school attendance and reduce rates of absenteeism.

 

A child’s success at school is likely to be affected negatively if their attendance is poor. Those who do not attend regularly may fall behind in their learning, leading to underachievement, both academically and socially.

 

The information below shows how attendance can affect your child’s future progression:

  • Above 97% : Less than 6 days absence a year Excellent attendance! These young people will almost certainly get the best grades they can, leading to better prospects for the future. Pupils will also get into the good habit of attending school which will help in the future.
  • 95%: 10 days absence a year. These pupils are likely to achieve good grades and form a habit of attending school regularly. 
  • 90%: 19 days absence a year. The Government classes young people in this group as ‘Persistent Absentees’ and it will be almost impossible to keep up with work with this level of absence.

 

 

We recognise the crucial role that parents play in promoting good school attendance. We ask that you continue to support us by contacting school by phone or email if your child is absent.

We operate a first day response if we have not been notified as to why your child is absent.

The national average for attendance was 96% (pre Pandemic).

Historically our whole school attendance has been very positive for many years, usually above 96% (pre Pandemic).

 

Our School Council have been thinking about rewards for good attendance. The class each week with the best attendance will receive an additional 10 minute playtime on a Friday afternoon.
