At Harton Primary School we place great value on the importance of good school attendance.
We know that the best way to prepare children for success in their education and in their future life is to establish good habits of attending school, on time, every day.
Our target is for all children to achieve attendance of 97%, wherever possible. This is because we really want them to achieve their full potential.
Children with attendance of below 90% are classed as ‘persistently absent.’ Did you know that an attendance percentage of 90% is equivalent to missing 19 school days a year? Every missed day creates gaps in children’s learning which can be difficult to catch up on.
Of course we understand that children will need time off from time to time if they are unwell. Please contact school on the first day of illness to let us know the reason for your child’s absence.
We use a system called ‘A Star Attendance’ to provide you with updates about your child’s attendance. You can help to avoid attendance becoming a concern by not booking any term-time holidays, and avoiding any appointments during school hours.
Punctuality is just as important as good attendance. If a child comes to school every day but is regularly late they are still missing out on vital learning.
If you have any concerns about your child’s welfare or school attendance, please make an appointment with the school office. We have a great team of family support and attendance workers who can work with you to resolve any issues you are having, and they may be able to direct you to other agencies if necessary. We are always happy to help!
