How can parents/carers support good attendance?

- Encourage good attendance by speaking to your child about the importance of school,
- Take an interest in your child’s schoolwork and find opportunities to give praise or reward attendance,
- Make sure your child understands that you do not approve of absence from school,
- Inform us on each day of your child’s absence before 8.00am,
- Provide us with more than one emergency contact for your child, to ensure that if we receive no response from one number, we can try the others that you have provided,
- Cooperate with the school to make sure your child overcomes any barriers to attendance and always be honest about reasons for absence,
- Make as many appointments as possible outside of school hours.
