Why is regular School attendance important?
By law, all children of compulsory school age (5-16) must receive a suitable full-time education.
Once your child is registered at school, you are legally responsible for making sure that they attend regularly. If your child fails to do so, you risk getting a penalty notice or being prosecuted. You also need to think about the negative impact upon the following:
Gentleshaw monitors attendance of every child in the school and in partnership with the Education Welfare Office.
For 2015-2016 school year we achieved 96.2% attendance. Our School's target for 2016-2017school year is 97%. We believe this target to be achievable.
Timekeeping is also important in the education of your child. If your child is persistently late then they are missing out on important learning opportunities at the start of a lesson.
