Attendance & Absence

Good attendance and punctuality is vital if children are to do their best and make good progress. 

Research shows that children are likely to meet age-related expectations if they have high levels of attendance at school. If children understand how important good attendance and punctuality is they will achieve more in school and will develop good habits for the future. Our attendance target for the school is 97%

Absence from school will be authorised if it is due to severe illness or medical needs. However, we still encourage children to attend school unless they are very unwell. When children are not attending school, parents/carers must inform us every day they are absent.  If an absence is not reported by a parent then we are duty-bound to investigate, and if no reason is given then it becomes an unauthorised absence.

Holidays in term time are not permitted, and the school complies with the national and Tower Hamlets policies where fines are issued to families if children are taken out of school for more than three consecutive days for a holiday or other reason.
