Every day missed from school is a lost opportunity. Requests for holidays during term time have increased and it is important that parents are aware that these will be refused unless there are really exceptional circumstances. If a child is taken away for a two week holiday every year and has the average number of days off for sickness and appointments, by the time they
leave at 16 they will have missed a year of school.
Your child’s teacher will be monitoring attendance closely and parents of any child whose attendance is seen to be of concern below 90% in the first half term, rising to below 95% as the year progresses, will be contacted by the school.
Castle Camps Primary School aims to:
· raise levels of achievement by ensuring the highest possible levels of attendance, punctuality and involvement in the school
· ensure that every child has access to the education to which they are entitled
· be proactive in addressing early patterns of absence.
