Attendance

Regular attendance is very important but children should not be sent to school if they are unwell. Please telephone or e-mail the school office if your child is going to be absent and on each subsequent day.

Attendance registers must now distinguish between authorised and unauthorised absences and all absences need to be coded. Unless you can confirm the reason (by letter, telephone or in person) the absence will have to be counted as unauthorised and will count towards the school's absence rate which is recorded on government's statistics. Also, any child arriving after registration closes will be recorded as late. In the academic year 2017-2018, the school's attendance rate was 96.69%. This is significantly higher than national figures for 2016-2017 (96%) and Hertfordshire (96.1%).
