Attendance and Procedures
At Banks Road we are committed to every child achieving the local authority goal of 97% attendance.
Below are the policies and procedures we have in place to ensure every child achieves their potential and accesses their education fully.
Absences must be reported to the school office before 9.00.a.m. on the first day your child is absent from school. If your child's attendance is below 95% you may be asked to provide medical evidence to support any absences.
If school does not received notification of a child's absence then a first response action is taken. This is firstly a phone call, but WILL be followed by a house visit if the phone call is unsuccessful. This is a safeguard response to ensure every child at Banks Road is accounted for every day.
Children who do not attend school regularly are less likely to achieve their potential.
As a school it is our responsibility to ensure every child can reach their potential therefore we seek the support of the Educational Welfare Service where ever irregular attendance is becoming a barrier to learning .
Well done to the 68 children who achieved 100% attendance for the spring term!
