For our children to gain the greatest benefit from their education it is vital that they attend school regularly and arrive at school on time unless the reason for the absence is unavoidable. Any absence affects the pattern of a child's social and academic education and regular absence will seriously affect their learning.

Late arrival at school disrupts teaching routines, can upset the learning of others in the class and can disturb the smooth eduction of your child.

It is important that if your child is to do well at school then they attend regularly, as performance and achievement at school is directly affected by absence or lateness.
