Reporting Absence:

If your son or daughter is unable to attend school because of sickness or will be late, please contact the school on the first day of absence so that their class teacher and our attendance officer can be informed.

If your son / daughter's attendance over one school year is:

98% = 4 days absent from school

95% = 10 days absent from school

90% = 4 weeks absent from school

85% = 5.5 weeks absent from school

80% = 7.5 weeks absent from school

Attendance over 5 years (7-11):

85-90% attendance is equivalent to half a year off school

80% attendance is equivalent to missing a WHOLE SCHOOL YEAR!

Welsh Government Target for all schools is 95%
