The importance of School Attendance
The school day starts at 8.45am so it is important not to be late.
It is important that everyone works together to help children obtain the best possible start in life with a good education. Parents should work in partnership with the school, notifying the school of the reason for any of their child’s absences and highlighting any areas of concern they may have so they can be addressed promptly.

Our Attendance Policy
Our Attendance Policy is that we monitor pupil’s attendance daily, you will receive a phone call if you haven’t reported your child absent. Parents will be kept informed by way of a letter of their child’s % attendance if it starts to drop. If they have further days of absence they receive a letter inviting them in for a meeting.
The EWO (Bromley Education Welfare Officer) will become involved if your child’s attendance falls in to persistent absence (below 90%).
