Since the start of this year, our Attendance Officer has completed 126 home visits to support pupils and families with absences from school, in most cases resulting in improved attendance. It is important to us that all children feel safe and supported when attending school and we are keen to work with you to ensure that your child feels this way.
Unfortunately, the local authority has already issued 20 Fixed Penalty Notices for avoidable school absence this academic year. We would remind parents and carers that we do not authorise any term time holidays and would ask you to familiarise yourself with the attendance & punctuality guidance for parents and carers available via our website.
Please email email@example.com with the subject – ‘For the attention of Head of House for X – Attendance’ if there is anything we can do to support you or your child.
