Attendance

Children achieve more highly when they have good levels of attendance to school. If your son is too unwell, or there is another good reason why he cannot come to school, please phone reception and leave a message to explain why he will not be in.

If your son is not in school and we have not heard from you, we will contact you, usually by phone, to find out why your son is not here.

If you are having difficulties getting your son to school, please let us know and we will support you; for example, it may be suitable for us to do a home visit to help you to get your son back into school. Our Education Welfare Officer, Darren Duncan-Paige, will also be happy to help and can be emailed on dduncan-paige@nightingaleca.org

If levels of attendance fall, you will be informed and you may be invited to a School Attendance Panel; this is also an opportunity for us to discuss different options for support available to you.

If attendance continues to be too low, you may be issued with a fine.

Students should not be taken out of school during term time for holidays. If there is an exceptional reason that you need to take your child out of school during term time, please contact the Principal to ask for permission.
