We believe it is vitally important that the children attend school every day to allow them to benefit from the rich curriculum that is offered.
Parents have a responsibility to ensure that their children receive full time education.
Regular attendance and punctuality are essential if children are to succeed in their education and reach their full potential.
Failure to attend school results in missed opportunities, disrupts a child’s education and impacts on his/her long term attainment and life chances. Beverley St Nicholas Community Primary School works closely with parents on all matters relating to attendance. Further support is provided by our School Business Manager.
We expect that parents ensure that their child attends school on time every day and that holidays in term time are avoided. It is crucial that your child is punctual. Persistent lateness is detrimental to their progress and disrupts the start of the day for the class.
Reporting your child’s absence
If your child is ill you should contact the school office on the first day of absence before 9.30am. In order to safeguard our children the school will contact the parents of a child if we have not received a notification of absence.
