Attendance

All children are expected to be in school, on time every day.

If your child is unwell, you must contact school to inform us. On your child’s return to school, a written note must be brought in to explain the reason for the absence.

If we become concerned that your child has been frequently late or absent, Mrs Tuffin (our learning mentor) will contact parents and Knowsley’s attendance team may become involved.

I’m sure that you will agree that children can only achieve their potential by attending school regularly.

Information regarding unauthorised absence is contained in Knowsley’s Parents’ Leaflet (Download)

School’s attendance for 2015-2016 was 96.12%.
School’s attendance for 2014-2015 was 95.93%.
