Attendance Policy


Why is Good School Attendance so Important?

At Holy Trinity Primary we are working closely as a school family to improve our attendance levels so that each child is given the opportunity to achieve their full potential. By law, all children of compulsory school age must receive a suitable full-time education. Once your child is registered at school, you are legally responsible for making sure that they attend regularly. If your child fails to do so, you risk getting a penalty notice or being prosecuted.

Good attendance is a skill for life and attendance has an impact on a child’s whole school experience.  As well as affecting your child’s academic potential, poor or irregular attendance can have an impact on your child’s friendships, self-esteem and confidence.

We monitor the attendance of every child in the school. If we have concerns about your child’s attendance then in the first instance we will contact you to offer support, however if your child’s attendance continues to pose a problem then you will be requested to attend our Attendance Panel.

90 % attendance sounds good, but means that your child misses:

one half day each week
nearly four weeks every school year
over one school year in a school career


Mild illness guidance

We know that winter is one of the peak times for adults and children to come down with mild illnesses such as colds, coughs and sore throats.

NHS Guidance: Is my child too ill for school? 


Nursery Persistent Absenteeism


In the event of poor or non-attendance, the Local Authority may withdraw your funding entitlement in relation to your Nursery place.


Together we can achieve it – We need your help!
