Welcome

Attendance

At Cotmanhay Infant and Nursery School we believe in the importance of regular attendance from the point that children join us in Nursery.

 

Good attendance = better learning opportunities + better preparation for their next stage in education + better social and emotional foundations

 

ATTENDANCE OF EVERY CHILD MUST BE 96% AND OVER

 

  • We monitor every child's attendance
  • We follow up all absence
  • We have a clear attendance policy
  • We have clear procedures for poor attendance
  • We reward good behaviour

 

SIMPLE REMINDERS:

  1. Let us know if your child is poorly and off school
  2. Don't keep them off for a cough or cold
  3. Holidays in term time are not authorised and you will be fined (school do not get the money)
  4. Children must be in between 8.45 and 9am
  5. Lates are not OK
  6. We monitor attendance
  7. Persistently poor attendance will result in a fine (school do not get the money)
  8. We will support families with attendance
  9. ATTENDANCE IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF PARENTS/CARERS

WHO CAN YOU SPEAK TO?

  • Mrs Delbridge, Family Support Worker
  • Miss Latchford, Headteacher
  • Miss Dawson, Deputy Headteacher
