Attendance at Kidgate
In order for children to get the greatest benefit from their education in school, it is important that they have good attendance and arrive punctually. As they grow and prepare for their next stages of education and employment children need to see good attendance and punctuality as important qualities that should be valued by themselves, their parents/carers, by others and by employers. We will do all that we can to encourage good attendance and punctuality.
Where children or their families are unable to meet our high expectations for attendance and punctuality we will put into place effective strategies to support them in bringing about improvement.
Please note that from September 2015 children classes as 'persistent absentees' will be those with 90% attendance and below.
