Attendance

School attendance can have an effect on a young person’s attainment and future life chances.

  • A student who takes less than 6 days absence a year (97% attendance) will almost certainly get the best grades they can.
  • Attendance at 85% (missing 29 days a year) means the young person is classed as a ‘persistent absentee’ and their parents/carers could face legal action from the Local Authority. It is impossible for these students to keep up with their work.
  • Attendance below 85% will seriously affect a young person ability to succeed at school—over a 5 year period this level of absence means that the student has missed a whole year of school.

We monitor attendance on a regular basis and follow the Somerset Local Authority strategy for School Attendance and DfE Statutory Guidelines, including the Education Regulations 2006/7 and amendments made from September 2013.

If we identify a young person whose attendance is a cause for concern we will send up to two letters home and if there has been no improvement we will refer the matter to our Somerset County Council Education Attendance Officer.

Haygrove School is committed to following Statutory Guidelines and Legal Processes and will request warning penalty notices where there are a significant number of unauthorised absences.

Attendance Policy 

Parents and carers can help by encouraging the maximum possible attendance at school and by contacting us at the earliest possibility to explain an absence and advising us in writing when your child returns to school.

 


Holidays in Term Time

Parents do not have a legal right to take children out of school for holidays; absences for holidays will not be authorised unless there are exceptional circumstances. This is in accordance with current Government guidelines. Please write a letter to request holiday to the Headteacher. Parents are advised to apply for holiday absence before booking a holiday.
