Attendance and Punctuality

Regular and punctual school attendance is important.

Pupils need to attend school regularly if they are to take full advantage of the educational opportunities available to them by law.

Norwood Primary School fully recognises its responsibilities to ensure pupils are in school and on time, therefore, having access to learning for the maximum number of days and hours.

The school sees 96% attendance or above as the target for all pupils and regularly monitors this to ensure no child is 'missing out' from being unnecessarily absent from or late for school.

Every half term parents will be contacted by letter if their child's attndance and/or punctuality falls below the expected standard and further monitoring will take place if there is no improvement. This may eventually lead to the serving of a penalty notice.

HOLIDAYS IN TERM TIME

It is important for parents / carers to note that the Head Teacher will not authorise ANY leave of absence unless the school feels the circumstances are unavoidable and exceptional. It is up to the Head Teacher to decide what is considered 'exceptional'.
