At Parkfield we concentrate very hard on maintaining our superb attendance and punctuality. If your child is ill you are required to inform school by telephone by 10.00am on the child’s first morning of absence, giving a reason for absence and an indication of when their child will return to school. A letter should also be brought into school on your child’s return. Absences for sickness are not automatically accepted if your child has a number of absences.
Children are required to attend school for 190 days each year. Government (DFE) research suggests that 16 days absence or 92% attendance in any one year can equal a full grade drop in attainment. How does your child’s attendance compare with this target? Please remember that children who miss a lot of school achieve even less.
An 'Attendance Ted' and 'On Time Ted' are awarded each week to the class with the highest attendance and fewest lates. In addition, the class with the best attendance record will also be given a special reward each half term.
