Ashlands Primary School is committed to providing an education of the highest quality to all its pupils and embraces the concept of equal opportunities for all. We recognise that this can only be achieved by supporting and promoting excellent school attendance.
For a child to reach their full educational achievement they must attend school regularly and punctually. We will consistently work towards a goal of 100% attendance for all children.
The whole school community – pupils, parents and carers, teaching and support staff and school governors – have a responsibility for ensuring excellent school attendance and all have important roles to play. The school will monitor attendance and ensure quick and early intervention if and when a problem is identified
School attendance is subject to various Education laws and this school Attendance and Punctuality Policy is written to reflect these laws and the guidance produced by the Department for Education.
