At Adderley Primary School we have high expectations for the attendance of all pupils on roll. This is because we recognise that all absence is potentially detrimental to a child’s education. Missing school can damage your child/ren’s achievements and opportunities provided by the school.
In order for pupils to gain maximum benefit from their time at school, and to maximise future life opportunities, it is imperative that your child/ren attend school every day.
Parents of registered pupils have a legal duty under the Education Act 1996 (sec 444) to ensure that children of compulsory school age attend school on a regular and full-time basis. Permitting unauthorised absence from school is an offence and parents may be reported to the Local Authority if problems cannot be resolved by agreement.
Our whole school attendance target for this year is 97%
