Attendance & Punctuality


The Governors and teachers of Newhey Community Primary School recognise the importance of attendance and attendance related issues in the overall operation of the School.  A Policy has been drawn up by the Headteacher of the School, in conjunction with the Education Welfare Service.

In order to allow children to gain the maximum benefit from their time in school, parents are asked to ensure that they attend school regularly.  If children do not attend school regularly, their education will be seriously affected in spite of the efforts of their teachers.  When a child has to have unavoidable time off school such as to keep a medical appointment, his/her parents should contact the school either by telephone or letter.  There is a standard letter if the school has not received a reason for a child’s absence and if this is not returned to school, the absence will be deemed unauthorised.

The Education Welfare Officer will be contacted regarding children who do not attend regularly.
