poster showing whether to keep your child off school or not
Children who miss out on their learning miss out on future life chances.
The school is committed to ensuring a high rate of attendance for all. We expect children to have a 97% attendance rate over each school year.
We ask all parents to inform the school before 10.00am on the first day of absence and to send a letter to the class teacher on the day their child returns from absence.
The Office Manager will phone/contact parents on the same day of absence if the parent has not contacted the school.
Repeated or unexplained absences will be followed up with a home visit from the School Family Support Worker - so it is important to keep school informed.
Children are asked to be punctual. The register will be taken at 9.00am. . Lateness and absence will be noted on the child’s Annual School Report.
100% attendance is rewarded on an annual basis with certificates and prizes in a special assembly.
All Saints staff are committed to children’s learning and wellbeing. During the Covid pandemic All Saints school was open bank holidays, half term and during the Easter break. The school’s attendance figures at tis time were consistently higher than Medway’s and National throughout.
Our school attendance figures are higher than Medway's and National's - our children want to come to school.
