EMERGENCY CONTACT DETAILS PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY
It is your responsibility to make sure that the school is given an up-to-date emergency telephone number in case your child is taken ill at school. This is particularly important with mobile phones, which are changed frequently. School need to have name, address and phone numbers of all parents/guardians with parental responsibility for the child even if you do not live together.
The government has launched a new national campaign to remind parents and carers of the importance of school attendance. You will be seeing it on tv, social media and hearing about it on the radio.
We regularly remind you of the importance of good punctuality and attendance and the negative impact poor attendance has on your child’s educational attainment and social and emotional development. In 2018/19, just 40% of persistently absent (PA) children in KS2 achieved expected KS2 standards, compared with 84% of pupils who were regular attenders.
The NHS and the Chief Medical Officer say it is usually appropriate for parents and carers to send their children to school with mild respiratory illnesses, including general cold symptoms like a minor cough, runny nose or sore throat.
From the first day of term to the last, the small moments in a school day make a real difference to your child. #AttendanceCounts so please ensure your child attends school regularly. Parents can also support their children’s education and the school by taking holidays and visiting family abroad during the holidays. There are 175 days a year that pupils do not have to attend school and these should be used for these purposes.
Thank you for your continued support.
