Is Your Child Missing Out?
Focus on Attendance and Punctuality
Research has shown that regular attendance and good punctuality are crucial factors in students achieving their full potential in education. At Marfleet Primary Academy we wish to work in partnership with parents and carers and so are seeking your full support in ensuring that your child attends school every day and on time. We are always pleased to work together with parents/carers in resolving any difficulties but we are also committed to improving attendance levels at school.
The target attendance figure for all pupils is a minimum of 97% attendance. Based on current attendance figures your child will be placed in one of the following groups below.
– Green Group
The child attends for 97% – 100% of the time.
Group 2: Concern
– Yellow Group
The child attends for 95% – 96.9% of the time.
Group 3: Risk of Underachievement
– Amber Group
The child attends for 93% – 94.9% of the time.
Group 4: Severe Risk of Underachievement
– Pink Group
The child attends for 90% – 92.9% of the time.
Group 5: Extreme Risk of Underachievement
– Red Group
The child attends for 0% – 89.9% of the time.
As a parent or carer, we ask you to:
Please come and speak to us if you are having difficulties getting your child into school.
As a parent, having a child who is ill can be a very stressful time, whether caring for them, looking after other siblings, trying to contact the doctor or making arrangements with work.
Therefore please help us to help you, by reporting your child’s absence to school no later than 9.00am. Our answer machine is on 24 hours a day, so please leave a message if you ring school and there is no one available to answer your call. Alternatively you can email us on email@example.com.
Unfortunately, if your child is absent and we do not hear from you, we have a duty of care to call each of your emergency contacts until we are able to establish that your child is safe and the cause for their absence.
If by 10am we still haven’t been able to speak to a parent/carer, we are then legally obliged to carry out a home visit. This is obviously an added pressure on parents and places a strain on staffing within the school, all of which could be easily avoided by simply notifying us by one of the methods above that your child will be absent that day.
Following a home visit, if contact has still not been made our duty of care will then extend to contacting 111; this is to ensure the safety and well-being of both children and parents/carers.
If your child is off for more than one day, please make sure that you let us know each morning that they won’t be in school again to avoid us having to call you to find out how they are.
Thank you for your support and cooperation in keeping our pupils safe.
