DID YOU KNOW THAT IF YOUR CHILD MISSES SCHOOL ON A REGULAR BASIS IT MAY:

  • Seriously hinder your child’s learning and their ability to do well and achieve their potential

  • Affect their confidence to attempt new learning and their ability to work  and learn alongside others in general and as a result develop reluctance or indeed refuse to attend school

  • Disrupt your child’s routines and make them feel vulnerable on their return to school

  • Cause disruption to teaching routines (if teachers need to revisit previous learning) and as a result affect the learning of other children in your child’s class

  • Affect their ability to make and sustain friendship groups. Children who are regularly absent from school often feel excluded from play-time games and activities and feel they have little in common with their peers

  • Lead to your child becoming disillusioned with school and education school as they get older

  • Lead to you, as the parent / carer, being called in to school to discuss the situation as well as face legal and financial consequences.  Please remember that you have a legal duty to ensure your child attends school on a regular basis

If you are experiencing difficulty in getting your child to school on a daily basis it is important that you tell us. Come to the school office and ask for the Attendance Officer or the Home-School Support Workers. We will always try to help.
