Why Does Attendance Matter?

 

Regular school attendance is an important part of giving children the best possible start in life. The aim should be to attend 100% of the time. Students who miss school frequently can fall behind with their work and do less well in exams. Good attendance also shows potential employers that a young person is reliable.

 

When students are not frequently absent, their grades and reading skills often improve - even among those students who are struggling in school. Students who frequently attend school feel more connected to their community and develop strong social skills and friendships, which are important life skills.

 

Schools check pupils' attendance twice a day by taking a register. If your child misses school without permission or a good reason (such as being poorly or attending a medical appointment), the school records this absence as 'unauthorised'. This will affect your child's attendance record and could lead to a fine or even legal action.
