Attendance Matters!


We can only teach your child when they are in school. There is a direct link between achievement and attendance.


We therefore:

· Regularly monitor attendance and punctuality and contact you about concerns

· Support children who are having difficulties which impact on their attendance by   

  looking for the best person/organisation to support your child

· Reward good attendance through our rewards system

· Will not authorise requests for holidays unless there are exceptional circumstances.

  Any exceptional circumstances must be put in writing to the Executive Principal.


We ask that parents/carers:

· Inform us promptly of any absences and return children to school as soon as they can

· Try to make medical appointments out of school time

· Avoid holidays in term time

· Do not take time off for shopping trips, family events such as birthdays and outings

· Parents/Carers have a legal responsibility to ensure regular and punctual attendance.

· All parents/carers should encourage their children to attend 95% or more.


Should you wish to discuss any issue with attendance please email our Attendance Team at enquiries@sheffieldsprings.org
