Regular attendance and punctuality are essential if we are to help your child achieve their full potential.
At Horninglow Primary: A de Ferrers Trust Academy we believe that high attendance rates are a significant factor in maintaining the quality of education that we provide. If we are to maintain the continuity of education for all our children, maximise their potential and prepare them for the world of work, we must ensure that absenteeism is kept to an absolute minimum.
We have introduced a colour coded system in an attempt to improve the attendance of all children in our school. Evidence shows that attendance does affect child's learning and development. All children are expected to have an attendance percentage that allows them to be in green or yellow groups.
WELL DONE. THIS IS EXCELLENT!
90% and below
PERSISTENT ABSENCE PUPIL. ACTION REQUIRED!
We expect all parents/carers will support their children by:
Aiming for 100% attendance
Arriving at the academy for the start of registration so all children are ready to start lesson on time.
Informing a member of staff about any problems that may affect their child's attendance at the academy.
Reporting all absences to the academy before 09:00am on your child's first day of absence and everyday thereafter.
